Rola-brava,European Turtle-dove (Streptopelia turtur)

Last year only saw a specimen.Maybe this is my Turtle-dove year ;)...
Less wheat fields, excessive hunting and the invasion of Eurasian Collared Dove are the reasons for the gradual disappearance of this species...

Photo taken from the hide...

Thank You for stopping by...

Bom dia Jose,
We don't see them often, they become rare in our country. This is a splendid photo in great sharpness and wonderful details. The contrasting colours against the dark background are very beautiful. Impressive pose with eye contact.

Your hide pictures are brilliant and this one is no exception, Jose.
The Turtle Dove looks beautiful and the details on its plumage are just perfect.
Thanks and regards.

Hello Jose,
this is a real good picture, maybe a bit tight cropped but the rest is almost perfect.
Accurate white balance, correct exposure, very good sharpness vid fine details and nice colors.
Well done.
