Another bird we saw on our camping trip...outstanding color, but hard for me at least to distinguish. Because the pictures are not perfect it took me a while because the White-bellied Green Pigeon and the Whistling Green Pigeon look almost alike...I'm still not 100% sure, but the Whis.Green Pigeon has a deep golden orange crown and I'm not seeing that. But, as usual, in case I'm mistaken corrections are welcome and appreciated !!! Either way it was a treat to see the beautiful bird...

Pigeons and doves constitute the bird clade Columbidae, that includes some 310 species. They are stout-bodied birds with short necks, and have short, slender bills with fleshy ceres. Doves feed on seeds, fruits, and plants. This family occurs worldwide, but the greatest variety is in the Indomalaya and Australasia ecozones.
