This dove usually lives in small groups but will form large flocks around water and food sources.
They are noisy when flying because they make a clapping sound with their wings. Ring-necked doves are fast flyers and have a 'homing' instinct.
They have been domesticated for many years, and tame doves can be found throughout the world.
