Jambu Fruit Dove

Ptilinopus jambu

Difficult to spot its green feathers among the foliage, the Jambu fruit dove’s soft cooing gives it away. Generally solitary or in pairs, a flock of doves will gather together at a fruiting tree to feed. They pluck fruits directly from the tree or feast on fruits knocked to the ground by monkeys and hornbills.
