The Peaceful Dove (Geopelia striata) is an Australian native species found through most of the country except southern parts of Western Australian and Western South Australia. It is noticeably smaller than another native dove with which it shares this range. The Peaceful Dove is 19-21 cm in length and the Bar Shouldered Dove (Geopelia humeralis) is 26-30 cm. In the Kundedjnyenghmi dialect of Bininj Kunwok from Western Arnhem Land it takes a name from its quiet but well loved call — korloddoddok.
