About The Madagascar Turtle-Dove

Nesoenas picturata has a native range encompassing Madagascar, the Seychelles and the Comoros (del Hoyo et al. 1997). The subspecies aldabrana, endemic to the Amirante Islands, Seychelles, is now extinct due to hybridisation with the introduced nominate subspecies (Skerrett and Disley 2011).
