[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
The Wompoo Fruit-Dove is identified by its large size, rich purple throat, chest and upper belly, and yellow lower belly. It has mostly green underparts, with a paler grey head and a conspicuous yellow wing-bar. It is perhaps the most beautiful of all the doves found in Australia, and both sexes are similar in plumage. Birds from the north are smaller (35 - 45 cm) than those in the south (up to 50 cm). The call is a deep resonant "wollack-a-woo" and, occasionally, a more abrupt "boo". Young Wompoos are duller and greener than the adults.

Another bird with amazing colors, Biswarup.
I have so enjoyed your collection of exotic and totally beautiful birds.
That magenta red and turquoise green and baby blue... what a combination. Only nature can arrange such an outrageous color scheme and get away with it.
Great capture.
TFS. : )
