Well, just a few hours actually, from first light till about 11am. The tree in question was laden with ripe fruit, and as a consequence, it was a hive of activity. Here are some of the guests who turned up for the banquet.
Recognize this sunbather?
It was the green-pigeons I was really after, hoping that an Orange-breasted, or even better, a Cinnamon-headed would drop by. Neither did, but then I could hardly complain at this stunning male Pink-necked Green-pigeon!
This resting female shows how effective the green plumage is as camouflage!
Looks like I wasn’t the only one who found it hard to wake up this morning!
It’s hard not to yawn when looking at this pic! Thick-billed Green-pigeons were the commoner of the two Trerons at the tree, and they would frequently take breaks to doze in the shade of a nearby ketapang tree.
A female perking up!
All in all, a productive few hours, despite the lack of rare pigeons!
