What a pleasant surprise awaited me when i was observing a sole Spotted Dove (Streptopelia chinensis) resting on a street lamp post. The sun had just risen an hour ago when this bird raised one of its wing up high to expose the feathers from its inner surface to the sun‘s rays for about a minute before lowering it. It was rather unusual to see them doing this all the time and i was fortunate to have 'spotted' the spotted dove!
