Hawaiian zebra dove

Geopelia striata


Little doves small with a long, narrow tail. The upperparts are brownish-grey with black-and-white barring. The underparts are pinkish with black bars on the sides of the neck, breast and belly. The face is blue-grey with bare blue skin around the eyes. There are white tips to the tail feathers. Juveniles are duller and paler than the adults. Zebra Doves are 20-23 centimetres in length.


In small towns, beaches and gardens all over the Hawaiian islands.


My predigital era. Scan. The funniest for me is that these doves made a sound very much like "kauna kakaai"
