History [ edit ]

Diamond Doves, the symbol of Peace, can be found in the wild in Central and Northern Australia, near watercourses. They belong to the genus Geopelia which includes other four long tailed doves: Peaceful Dove (Geopelia placida), Barred Dove (Geopelia maugeia) and Bar-shouldered Dove (Geopelia humeralis). The Diamond Dove is the most kept among these by aviculturists and it is considered common in the wild.

In general, this bird is considered semi-domesticated since it has been bred in captivity for a long time.
