I Come In Peace! - Wild Dove - NZ by 


The little tell tail tufts of fluff indicate this is a juvenile Dove, judging by the eye colour I am not sure if this is a collard dove or a mixed breed… This curious little fellow was perched amongst the rhododendron bushes in the Gore gardens. He was not afraid and posed while I took a few photos. He has a beautiful black eye where as the collard doves I have seen in the gardens usually have a red eye… This would be a brother, sister or relative to D-Pax ..

My fascination with birds began as a child and almost 50 years down the track my love for our feathered friends has not diminished. Once we moved to Tranquillity (our little country retreat) my passion for birds, all nature and wildlife became a digital reality through the lens of my camera.

    Lovely close-up Andrea. We have a few mixed Doves among ours – some of them don’t show a collar at all and some are a light browny/fawn. I thought maybe these are juveniles but they are quite big. I must look them right in the eye next time….lol !

  • You are so kind, thank you so much for the lovely comment Roy. Let me know when you have had an eyeball with them…lol
