A native boid of Thailand, Tom...they are handsome and common.
Tom Wilson: Originally from India, then expanded to neighbouring countries. Possibly introduced by man into Europe - only known in the Balkans in the 1930s - later had major population explosion and expanded across Europe. First bred in UK in 1955 and I saw my first on in the North-east in 1960 smile
A lovely portrait Tom!
Tom Wilson: Thanks, Richard.
They are so pretty! Nice one Tom!
Tom Wilson: They are very pretty, aren't they? Very successful too in taking over as urban birds.

Excellent detail of this two-stepping dove.
Tom Wilson: Thanks, Louis.
Waiting patiently too.
Tom Wilson: There wasn't much around for it to eat, but it got a little from me smile
