Nicobar Pigeon

The Nicobar Pigeon is one of the most beautiful of the many species of pigeons or doves and is the only living member of the genus Caloenus. It is found in the Islands of Nicobar, south west peninsular Thailand, Malaysia, Vietnam, Indonesia, Philippines, Solomans and palau. Once known to be found in abundance in its range, their numbers in the wild are declining as they are frequently captured for pet trade and hunted for food.

Slightly larger than other pigeons at 40 cm, it has a dark slaty grey body with lustrous metallic blue-green and copper-bronze upperparts. It can easily be distinguished by its glistening mane-like neck hackles and sharply contrasting white tail coverts and tail. Females are smaller in size than males with shorter neck hackles and brown under parts. Youngs are born dull grey without the neck hackles and a bronzy green tail instead of white.

It is known to remain solitary as well as is found in flocks of 20-30. Though its flight is swift and powerful, and capable of sustaining long distances, it prefers to feed entirely on the ground, picking fleshy fruits and seeds off the forest floor. When in groups, they communicate with each other by uttering harsh guttural croaks. During the breeding season from January to March, females make nests by loosely putting together twigs high up on evergreen trees, where they can safely lay eggs.

Queen Mary Falls

Queen Mary Falls is about 175km from Brisbane, on the other side of the Great Dividing Range. I don't usually do daytrips that are quite so far away, but Tourism Queensland had an Instameet (a meetup for Instagram photographers) there yesterday and I'm glad it gave me an excuse to get out there.

There are plenty of waterfalls in the area, so a few other photographers and I made a full day of it and hiked to two other waterfalls as well. It was tiring, but a great day out.

Mingled tree

The tambourine national park forest near Brisbane has some very impressive giant trees, a great walk.
