Breeding Notes: The African collared dove constructs nests in small trees and bushes, not very high above the ground. Two eggs are laid one or two days apart and then incubated for 14 days. After hatching the parents feed babies with "pigeon milk" which comes from the lining of their crops. After a week or so the parents begin to add seed to the diet. In three weeks the babies are on an all seed diet and usually fledge, however they are not self sufficient yet. The parents' will continue to feed them for another week as they learn how to find food.
