Wild Merbok




This is a wild zebra dove. 
It was picking seeds on the grass verge.
Sorry about the photo as I was testing the extent of the phone camera zoom. 

 Normally it is kept as a caged bird and owners enter their birds in singing competitions.
More information about the bird here.
And this is a local newspaper report of the singing competition.
