Come A Little Bit Closer... - Malay Spotted Dove - NZ by 


Malay Spotted Dove…The Spotted Dove (Spilopelia chinensis) is a small and somewhat long-tailed pigeon which is a common resident breeding bird across its native range on the Indian Subcontinent and Southeast Asia. The species has been introduced into many parts of the world and feral populations have become established in many areas outside its native range. These areas include Hawaii, southern California, Mauritius, Australia and New Zealand. Our new arrival is still hanging around the garden, we were able to get a little closer with the camera… He has the most beautiful markings… Panasonic Lumix DMC-FZ200 Southland New Zealand Jan. 2013

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.

    I love the spotted ruff on the back of the neck and the wing feathers are spectacular! You do have an incredible talent for attracting the abandoned and lost creatures…instead of an X marking your yard there must be a huge heart over it:) Sandy
