Dwarf Fruit-Dove

Ptilinopus nainus (Temminck, 1835)

The Dwarf Fruit Dove (Ptilinopus nainus) is a species of bird in the Columbidae family. It is found in lowland and foothill forest in New Guinea and the Raja Ampat Islands. With a total length of 13–15 cm, it is the shortest pigeon or dove in the world, but as it is relatively thickset, several other species weigh less. Its plumage is overall green, but with contrasting yellow undertail-coverts and narrow bars to the wings. Unlike the female, the male has a purple patch on the belly. Source: Wikipedia
