Black-Naped Fruit Dove

Ptilinopus melanospilus

Females and juveniles have only green feathers. Males carry the namesake black nape in addition to grey and yellow head feathers and yellow and pink tail feathers. Young males will gradually gain their namesake coloration as they age. Females make a flimsy nest out of twigs, in which they lay a single white egg.
