These pictures were all taken at East Point in Darwin, which is a public park. A number of people found it rather interesting that there was a group of people sporting lenses of various sizes at what is basically one of the commonest birds in the region. I explained that we were from 'down south' and that seen to suffice.
Both of the Bar-shouldered Doves names (Geopelia humeralis) refer to its shoulders, even if the barring is really on the neck of the bird.
We saw these birds every day and almost everywhere when I was in NT, and despite them being rather common I do like them. The antics of the pair of birds in the first pictures also made me smile I lot!
