Spinifex pigeon (Geophaps plumifera)

The Spinifex Pigeon is a bird found in Australia. Generally they live in stony areas with low woodlands and spinifex grasses. They are nomadic and terrestrial. The pigeons are seed eaters and are dependent on waterholes recharged by wet season monsoonal rains and showers. As the dry season progresses, they concentrate around the ever-decreasing water sources. They are often found in pairs or groups.
