Bonin wood pigeon (Columba versicolor)

Author Lydia Kingsley Kefford

The Bonin wood pigeon (Columba versicolor) was a pigeon endemic to Nakodo-jima and Chichi-jima in the Ogasawara Islands, south of Japan. It is known from four recorded specimens, the first from 1827 and the last from 1889. They averaged a length of 45 cm. This pigeon died out late in the 19th century as a result of deforestation, hunting, and predation by introduced rats and cats. Order: Columbiformes, Family: Columbidae, Genus: Columba, Species: Columba versicolor Kittlitz, 1832.
