The Superb Fruit Dove is a small colourful bird, with the male and female differing greatly in form and colouring. While the male’s appearance is very colourful and delights the eye with its multicoloured composition, the female’s plumage is more basic. Her usually superbly coloured plumage acts as amazingly good camouflage among the branches. In the chameleonic change between light and shadow, the bird’s contours melt into the background. The Fruit Doves only very rarely leave the treetops to occasionally search for food on the ground. It is amazing just how large the fruit and seeds on which the Fruit Doves feed can be at times.
