Fruit Doves are a diverse and colourful genus of fruit-eating, forest-dwelling doves/pigeons from southeast Asia and Australasia. The male is often more colourful than the female. For the Black-naped (Black-headed) Fruit Dove, only the male has a black nape; the female is mostly green. They come from the southern Philippines, Java, Bali and some Malaysian islands.
