The barred dove, (Geopelia maugei) is a small dove which is native and endemic to the Lesser Sunda Islands in Indonesia. It is closely related to the zebra dove of southeast Asia and the peaceful dove of Australia and New Guinea.
The barred dove is similar to the zebra dove in appearance but has bare yellow skin around the eye and black-and-white barring which extends right across the breast and belly.
