Colourful "Superb Fruit Dove"

Chris  Randall

Port Macquarie, Australia

Artist's Description

The Superb Fruit-Dove is a small colourful pigeon of the tree canopy and is found along the coast and nearby ranges of Queensland and New South Wales south to Moruya. It is found in rainforests, rainforest margins, mangroves, wooded stream-margins, and even isolated figs, lilly pillies and pittosporums.
Taken at Taronga Zoo (NSW Australia) in the aviary. If you are very quiet and patient you will be rewarded as the birds come very close to investigate.
