2021 $1 Doves & Pigeons Coin & Stamp Cover PNC.
Approximately 340 species of pigeons and doves (Family Columdidae, order Columiformes) are distributed almost worldwide, with strongest representation in tropical and subtropical regions.
In Australia they occur in most habitats, from the dense rainforests of north Queensland to the windswept heathlands of Tasmania.
Despite its brilliant plumage colouration, the arboreal Superb Fruit-Dove (Ptillinopus superbus) remains well hidden amidst foliage, so is more often heard than seen in the rainforests of eastern Queensland and north-eastern New South Wales.
These fruit-doves feed almost exclusively of fruits and berries, mainly in large trees.
The nest is composed of a platform of interlocked forked twigs, placed five to 30m above the ground.
The female incubates the single egg at night and the male incubates it during the day.
The stamp and coin cover features an illustrated envelope featuring two superb fruit doves in colour along with an Australian $1.10c commemorative stamp and is post marked First Date of Issue 1st June 2021, Doveton VIC 3177.
