Pink Dinosaur #229

Pink Ptilinopus by David Tana

30 – Ptilinopus jambu – this small Asian dove lives in the mangrove swamps and lowland rain forests of Java, Sumatra, Indonesia, Malaysia, Thailand, and Brunei.  As its name suggests, this inconspicuous bird feeds on fruit directly from the tree or that has been dropped to the ground. This male has a face just pink enough to make the cut for this ART Evolved event. Image references for illustration from Wikimedia Commons.
