Ptilinopus perlatus, Pink-spotted Fruit Dove, Walik Mutiara

The Pink-sPtilinopus perlatus, Pink-spotted Fruit Dove, Walik Mutiarapotted Fruit-dove (Ptilinopus perlatus) is a species of bird in the Columbidae family. It is found in forest and woodland in lowland and foothills of New Guinea and nearby smaller islands. It is widespread and generally common. As most other fruit-doves, it is largely green. The chest is duller and browner, the throat and nape are grey-white, and, uniquely for a fruit-dove, the wings are spotted pink. The face and crown are usually olive-green, but this is replaced by pale grey in the north-eastern subspecies plumbeicollis. The male and female are essentially identical.
