    I am posting this in the hope of gaining some insight into these vocalizations my female Ringneck dove, Sable, has been making.

    Sable is almost 1 year old (my husband and I have had her since she was approximately 4 months old). She has been making these sounds more frequently lately, however, I was initially not really concerned as the Ringneck doves I have had in the past would also make this noise from time to time, but seemed fine otherwise.

    Sable also seems healthy in every other way. She is eating and drinking normally, is alert and seems to have good energy levels. The only issue (if it is an issue at all) is this seemingly unusual sound she has been making.

    I hope that someone will be able to give some clarification and/or suggestions.

    Thank you in advance. :)

    It does seem to be a "dove thing". I guess the reason I've been a bit concerned is because she seems to make that noise a bit more than my other doves did.

    Thank you for your reply. :)

    Thanks for the suggestion. :) I'm pretty certain nothing is wrong with her, and I mostly wanted to know if anyone else with Ringneck doves has heard their birds make this sound.
