Geopelia is a genus of small, long-tailed doves. They are native to South-east Asia and Australasia and are most often found in open country and scrubland. They feed mainly on seeds which they find by foraging on the ground. They typically lay two eggs in a simple nest of twigs and grass. Their plumage is mostly greyish-brown with a pattern of spots or bars. The Zebra Dove and Diamond Dove are commonly kept in captivity.
