Pale-capped Pigeon

Columba punicea Blyth, 1842

The Pale-capped Pigeon (Columba punicea) also known as the Purple Wood Pigeon is a species of large pigeon that is found patchily distributed in parts of South and Southeast Asia. It has a slow flight and spends a lot of time sitting still in the foliage of large fruiting trees, often in riverine forest on the plains. It is mainly brown above and chestnut below with the a sheen of green or amethyst. Males have a whitish grey cap while females have a brownish grey cap and less gloss on the feathers. They are frugivorous, foraging in small groups in the canopy of trees but sometimes descending to the ground for seeds and fallen fruit. Source: Wikipedia
