kingdom animalia (animals)
phylum chordata (vertebrates and some closely related invertebrates)
class aves (birds)
order Columbiformes (doves, pigeons) (unique because with one or two other species outside this order, they all can drink water by sucking at it and don’t need to tilt their head back) (like many birds, they are monogamous)
family Columbidae (Doves and Pigeons)
