Grey-green Fruit Dove

Jardin Botanique, Tahiti, French Polynesia

Ptilinopus purpuratus

 

My first terrestrial endemic on Tahiti and I was quite excited. Locally common but in decline. This picture was taken in low light inside a tree in the botanic garden on the south side of the island (seen elsewhere too, but never upclose.)
