NZ Wood pigeon

After my last post, the leucistic kereru I thought it might be nice to post about the kereru with its normal colourations. Described on my favourite bird ID website; New Zealand Birds Online, the kereru is "a large arboreal pigeon with a red bill, feet and eyes. The upperparts are blue-green with purple-bronze iridescence on the neck, mantle and wing coverts, and the underparts are white with a sharp demarcation between the white and blue-green on the upper breast."
