PREVIOUS BIRD NEXT BIRD Singapore

A rare ground dove, known as a Luzon Bleeding-heart Pigeon, in Jurong Bird Park (fig.) in Singapore.

 

This small bird is slate grey, but due to the fact that it is iridescent, it can appear to be bluish-purple to greenish, depending on the light. The belly and under-wing areas are buff to chestnut, and a breast is white, with a bright red colour at the centre and a reddish hue extending down the belly, making it appear to be wounded.
