Nicobar Pigeon

Caloenas nicobarica (Linnaeus, C 1758)

The Nicobar pigeon is a bird found on small islands and in coastal regions from the Andaman and Nicobar Islands, India, east through the Malay Archipelago, to the Solomons and Palau. It is the only living member of the genus Caloenas, and may be the closest living relative of the extinct dodo, as well as the extinct Rodrigues solitaire. Source: Wikipedia
