This is Laughing Dove, they can be identified very easily by their conspicuous Beige feathers. The mourning dove has evolved so that its plumage blends into its surrounding environment. They are found almost in every climate if it is cold winters of North-America, or blazing heat of Rajasthan and even in rain-forests. The unique thing I observed is their feather makes a very noticeable whistling sound while taking-off. These are very clever birds but there are a lot of different mythical stories and folk-tails about them all around the world. The one my grandma used to tell goes like: Once the jungle fire started out of the blue. the female guarding the nest and the babies trapped in. The male was away in a village collecting sorghum from a farmers house. When he returned he saw the disasters and realised he couldn’t do anything to save his family, he didn’t have any idea what has happened. Since then he’s seen around the temples mourning “Hey Ram, Tu hi Jaan” (Oh God, you only know the truth)
