Galapagos Dove - Darwin Bay, Isla Genovesa, Galapagos, Ecuador
World Species #925
Galapagos Dove photographed at Darwin Bay, Isla Genovesa, Galapagos, Ecuador. These are found in the arid areas on some of the islands. Just look at the camouflage! It is really important for this bird to avoid predation. We found a Short-eared Owl hunting these and finally it got one - so the camouflage must come in handy.
