Wallace's Fruit-Dove

Ptilinopus wallacii Gray, GR 1858

Wallace's fruit dove is a species of bird in the pigeon family Columbidae. The name commemorates the British naturalist Alfred Russel Wallace. It is a rather large, long-tailed fruit dove with a length of 24–28 cm (9.4–11.0 in) and has been described as "one of the most beautiful" fruit doves. The forehead and crown are dull crimson, the lower face and throat are white, and the rest of the head, breast, neck, and upper back are pale bluish-grey. The wings and lower back are green and the belly is orange, separate from the chest by a white band. Both sexes look similar, but females have less extensive red on the head and a greenish tinge to their grey parts. Source: Wikipedia
