Description

Some droppings found under a feeding roost (huge eucalyptus tree) and "the revenge of the purple poo". I can't identify the seeds. For the purple poo, darker part are visible and I suppose that they are rests of the fruit exocarp (Syzigium spp. ?)

The droppings falls directly on the street (the site site is regularly cleaned and a lot of circulation during the day) as the roosting site is in Kigali city center.

Sorry I can't identify these! If you're ever inclined, you could try germinating some seeds. They could be Milicia excelsa if you have that around. I agree the blue poo seems Syzygium-ish. Thanks for posting and sorry it took me a while!
