Zebra Dove (Geopelia striata)
Location: Kohala Coast, Big Island, Hawaii
The Zebra Dove (Geopelia striata) is one of two species of dove that visit our garden daily. The other is the Spotted Dove (Streptopelia chinensis).
The Zebra Dove was introduced in Hawaii from Asia in the 1920s. They are very plentiful in our area. In fact, large numbers of Zebra Doves literally mob our bird feeders at certain times of the day.
