Details

CRIMSON-CROWNED FRUIT DOVE (Ptilinopus porphyraceus) – Fijian Fruit Dove, and in this dove both sexes have a similar plumage. This makes identification in field problematic, but fortunately they have very different calls which readily distinguish them, and the Crimson-crowned Fruit Dove is restricted to Fiji’s smaller and some medium-sized islands.
