Pink-Headed Fruit Dove
The pink-headed fruit dove is endemic to Indonesia where it occurs in the mountain forests of Sumatra, Java and Bali.
It feeds on small fruit and berries.
The dove is a shy species, generally seen singly or in pairs, but flocks of up to 15-20 birds may form at favoured fruit trees.
The species builds a flimsy nest in a tree and lays one or sometimes two white eggs which are incubated for 20 days to hatching, with a further 15–16 days to fledging.
The pink-headed fruit dove is evaluated as Least Concern on the IUCN Red List of Threatened Species and it is not yet thought to be highly threatened.
