Diamond Dove

Two young Diamond Doves feeding companionably on the ground

Geopelia cuneata, juveniles (adults have spotted wings and a red eye-ring). Not a great photo but the first time I had seen, and noticed, the species so close to Townsville; the juveniles are so similar to the common Peaceful Dove that they would very easily be overlooked.
