African Green Pigeon (Treron calva): Other names: Afrikaans: papegaaiduif - French: Colombar à front nu - German: Rotnasen-Grüntaube - Dutch: Afrikaanse papegaaiduif. Description: This is shy bird that is usually found in small flocks hiding in dense foliage. It is quiet and unobtrusive and almost entirely arboreal, rarely coming to the ground. It feeds on fruit and can be locally common around fruiting fig trees (its gizzard is adapted for grinding fig seeds). Physical characteristics: When seen clambering around in a tree, the immediate impression is of a green, parrot-like bird. At closer range, this species is unmistakable with its green-and-yellow plumage and chestnut vent. When feeding, it climbs about in fruiting trees, sometimes hangs upside down on branches to obtain fruit. Habitat: The African Green Pigeon inhabits the African forest, bushveld and savanna. Always associated with fruiting trees, especially figs ... Destination Kruger Park (great info & photos)
