Japanese Wood-Pigeon

Columba janthina Temminck, 1830

The Japanese Wood Pigeon (Columba janthina) is a species of bird in the Columba genus in the Columbidae family. It is found in China, Japan, Southern part of Korean peninsula, Russia, and Taiwan. They are believed to be the largest representative of the genus Columba, at 550 grams (1.2 lb) and 43 cm (17 in). Its natural habitats are temperate forests and subtropical or tropical moist lowland forests. It is becoming rare due to habitat loss. The species is in decline owing to habitat degradation, deforestation and hunting. This Wood Pigeon is endemic to the Laurel forest habitat. Source: Wikipedia
