CRESTED QUAIL DOVE or MOUNTAIN WITCH DOVES
(Tip & pics from Jacob Hadomi in Israel)
The pictures below show a marked coloration difference between the sexes in the vent region. This coloration difference may not always be as pronounced, but it gives one something to look for when obtaining this specie.
It is also said that there is a "hatching hair" coloration difference in the young. This has not yet been proven; some say it is accurate, other say it is not. Data is needed from any fancier who keeps & propagates the Mountain Witch Dove.
