Bar-shouldered Dove - Geopelia humeralis

Bar-shouldered Dove - Geopelia humeralis

Common throughout northern and eastern Australia, the Bar-shouldered Dove inhabits a range of forests and woodlands which support dense or grassy understorey, with nearby open areas and wetlands. Surprisingly, they also occur in mangroves and are considered to be a mangrove specialist in some regions. Seldom seen far from cover, Bar-shouldered Doves usually forage by pecking seeds from bare ground or among short grass. They drink throughout the day, though especially during the afternoon, and shelter in the shade of dense trees or shrubs.
