Bar-shouldered Dove

Geopelia humeralis


These beautiful Doves have a "blue-grey head, neck and upper breast, with a distinctive reddish-bronze patch on the hindneck, with dark barring. ... There is also a distinctive pinkish bar on the lower breast. The lower body is pale. They have a blue-grey eye-ring and reddish eye." (Birdlife Australia: )


Cruising around on the grass while the sprinkler was on at Goombaragin on the Dampier Peninsula. Plenty of company from Double-barred Finches (Taeniopygia bichenovii), Peaceful Doves (Geopelia striata placida), a couple of Great Bowerbirds (Chlamydera nuchalis), and a bunch of other bird species.
