Without an actual photo it's difficult to determine what type of bird it is. There is an Australian dove called the "Diamond Dove" which is similar to your description. This seems to be the closest to the bird you describe.  It is one of the smaller Australian doves. It can make a whistling sound when flying. These doves spend a lot of time walking around the bottom of the cage. I hope this helps you.
