Another few from last winter, it is amazing what you find lurking in your computer !!! I love the winter light.
This is the Spotted Dove, such a sweetheart and so pretty. She is sitting in my leaf bare apple tree.
V4 is the Red Wattle bird.

Spotted Dove, taken from Birds in Backyards.
Description:
Spotted Doves are mostly light brown above, with darker centres to the feathers of the back and wings. The head is grey, and the neck and underparts are grey-brown, tinged with pink. In flight the white-tipped tail is clearly seen. The distinguishing feature is the large black collar on the base of the hind-neck, which has many white spots. Sexes are similar in plumage. Young Spotted Doves are similar to adults, but have a mostly dark grey collar instead of black and white..
Where does it live?
Distribution:
The Spotted Dove is native to eastern Asia. It was introduced into Australia in the mid-1800s and early 1900s and quickly became established. It is now a common sight throughout eastern Australia, and around the major towns and cities in southern and south-western Australia.

Habitat:
The Spotted Dove is common around human habitation and can easily be seen in parks, gardens and agricultural areas.

Seasonal movements:
Some birds stay in the same area all year round, while others move around local areas.
