    Local game bird dove (qumri) is closely related to feral pigeon. It does not migrate and can be a pest. The migratory Eurasian dove comes south to breed. Local game wardens can further enlighten. For best game experience, use air-gun for perching bird and shotgun for flying.

    Oriental Turtle Dove: It is a migratory dove passing through Pakistan in March-may (migrating north) and September-October migrating south towards India. It does not breed in most of Pakistan. Some stay in Northern region to breed in mid-late summer.

    As to your question about exceedingly long breeding season, Doves are known to raise multiple broods through the breading season. one brood takes on average 28-31 Days from laying to the young ones being able to fly away. Some doves are known to raise 6 broods consecutively in the same nest.

    Hope this helps and you appreciate the answer.
