Bar Shouldered Dove

I have checked around aviculturists. We don't know anyone who keeps bar shouldered doves in Canberra at the moment. There were some at the Canberra Walk in Aviary but Bruce sold them all to a guy down the coast, about 2 years ago. That doesn't mean that noone keeps them. I guess the chance of it being an escapee is very low.

Is it possible that the bird may be a spotted turtle dove, from a distance they can look the same. I hope it isnt, in more ways than one, and I would love to see a bar shouldered dove.
