Ryukyu Pigeon
Columba jouyi

Range and population

Columba jouyi was endemic to Okinawa and Kerama, and the Daito Islands , in the Nansei Shoto Islands , Japan2. It was described in 1887 from a type in the Tokyo Educational Museum3, and is also known from three skins in Tring1. It apparently declined rapidly (and inexplicably), and was last recorded on Okinawa in 1904, and on Daito in 19362.
