I don't think he would eat a bird. He usually runs away from other animals if they are comparable to his size. :) But he does catch grasshoppers and dragonflies at times and kills them to hone his hunting skills.
Wow, lucky you. It was good that the dog was not hungry.
Thanks Satyen. I made a mistake on thinking they were the same. Actually I have seen an emerald dove too here. It was injured and was sitting in our balcony. My dog went to see it and started licking it. I think he scared the bird and it flew away scattering its feathers allover.
Harsha this is not Chalcophaps indica, Chalcophaps indica means a emerald dove http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Common_Emer...
