The Banded Fruit Dove (Ptilinopus cinctus) is found around rainforest pockets in sandstone escarpment country. This range is restricted to the West Arnhem Land Escarpment, extending as far south as the headwaters of the South Alligator River. In fifteen years working and living in the escarpment country I’ve seen it only a few times and only once when I had a camera. It’s on my list of birds I want to persuade to sit for some more extensive portrait sessions.
