Thick-billed Green-pigeon and Ficus virens

posted in: Feeding-plants, Pigeon-Dove, Videography | 0

Angie Ng came across a large Grey Fig (Ficus virens) with branches thick with figs on 23rd October 2012. Among the many birds feasting on the figs were Thick-billed Green-pigeons (Treron curvirostra), an uncommon resident species (above).

A few days earlier, Lena Chow was watching a flock of Thick-billed Green-pigeons gorging themselves on the same figs at Bukit Brown. Her video above shows “a gorgeous male pigeon having his fill.”
