African Green Pigeon

Treron calvus


Adult birds have maroon shoulder patches (olive in immatures) and rufous undertail coverts. They reach a length of 25–28 cm.


As with others in their genus, they frequent tree canopies where their parrot-like climbing ability[3] enable them to reach fruit, but rarely also forage on the ground.
