The Somali pigeon or Somali stock dove (Columba oliviae) is a species of bird in the Columbidae family. It is endemic to northern Somalia. Because there has hardly been any research on the species, the health of the population is uncertain. However, it has been suggested that the species is relatively rare. The IUCN Redlist identified a possible threat to the species from the speckled pigeon (Columba guinea).
The species dwells mostly in rock along the arid coast of Somalia. Food sources include seeds, cultivated grain and berries.
