African Green-Pigeon

Treron calvus (Temminck, 1811)

The African Green Pigeon (Treron calvus) is a species of bird in the Columbidae family, and one of 5 Green Pigeon species in the Afrotropics. As with others in their genus, they frequent tree canopies where their parrot-like climbing ability enable them to reach fruit, but rarely also forage on the ground. The species has a wide range in Sub-Saharan Africa with around 17 accepted races. Source: Wikipedia
