Large Green Pigeon

Treron capellei

Description:

A flock of these large green pigeons on the Spiky Fig tree in a misty morning. Birds with small beaks like these pigeons can easily get into the flesh of the fig bypassing the sharp hairs. Epiphytic fig like this spiky fig depends on canopy birds like these to disperse its seeds onto another host tree.

Habitat:

Found on the Spiky Fig tree (Ficus cucurbitina) in a logged forest

Notes:

This was recorded during our few days observation to document the ecological value of this fig species as an important species for our reforestation projects.
