A closer look at a juvenile male Emerald Dove

on 7th October 2013

“I was this golf course-resort to watch some birds when I spotted this dead Emerald Dove (Chalcophaps indica indica) by the road side.

“Took some images and brought it home for a decent burial. It is a juvenile male with limited white eyebrow and shoulder patch.”
