Zebra Dove

DSC_1427

Zebra Dove (Géopélie zébrée | Geopelia striata): This species was introduced to Hawai’i in 1922 and is commonly found on all of the main islands. We thought that its call was quite exotic the first time we heard it; it was surprisingly “un-dove” like, in fact.

Taken on December 29, 2015, with a handheld Nikon D5200 and AF-S NIKKOR 200-500mm f/5.6E ED VR (ISO 1600 | 500mm | f/5.6 | 1/320). Slightly cropped. Not baited, called in or set up.
