These drop-dead gorgeous birds are all members of the genus Ptilinopus in the dove & pigeon family.There are 50 different species, and each is just as beautiful as the next.Fruit doves are shy, so little is known about their nesting and breeding habits. All we do know is they make very pretty babies!
I have a confession: I love animals. Join me and the rest of the Featured Creature community as we learn about the weirdest, coolest, and craziest animals out there. Including your dog, Mr. Scrufflebutt (if you submit him!).
