Maybe a dove, but it seemed to have unusually beautiful plumage. It is in Jakarta, Indonesia.

Thanks to Ivan for identifying it as a Bar-shouldered Dove.

Hi, dear friend.
It is really very attractive specimen. Its coloration is amazing. However, I like pictured scene at whole. Piece of covered with moss ground around stones are looked very impressively and pose of the bird is nice too. It is a pity exposure time could not be shorter. I am very glad see you here again. This is not the best time in TN-life. We lost many friends. My kind regards and TFS.

Hello Murray,
A fine capture of an indonesian sub-species The Bar-shouldered Dove (Geopelia humeralis). The POV is great to show the fine colours of this male with good sharpness.
Thanks and best wishes,

Hi Murray,

The close-up point of view is showing the details and colors of the bird. The picture is clear and precise. It is well located in the composition. The surrounding light brings out the colors. Have a nice day.
