Little Green Pigeons of Kuala Pilah Negeri Sembilan

Flock of Little Green Pigeons were feeding in this fruiting tree when Ang, Raj and myself arrived for all day birdwatching at Kuala Pilah, Negeri Sembilan, Saturday morning. It was quite hot by 9am when we arrived at forests nearby the Reservoir. Tarred road made it easier for us to walk for short distances when birding. 
The male Little Green Pigeon has such a striking orange colour on its breast with greenish underparts and deep maroon-coloured wings. 
Male Little Green Pigeon jumps off one branch to another branch laden with fruits. Lovely sight:)
Female Little Green Pigeon is all green with lighter maroon wings. Fruits were green pouch-like berries which also attracted Cream-vented bulbuls to this same tree. Also seen were Red-eyed bulbuls and Buff-vented bulbuls. Really loved observing this flock of Little Green Pigeons feeding together with the bulbuls in this fruiting tree but it was time to move on towards the Orang Asli settlement.

  1. Orang Asli settlements in Southern Peninsular Malaysia who are "Proto-Malays" consist of a few tribes according to Jabatan Kemajuan Orang Asli (JAKOA) website. Temuan tribes live in Selangor, Melaka, Pahang, Muar District, Johor and Negeri Sembilan. See JAKOA's website at http://www.jakoa.gov.my/en/orang-asli/info-orang-asli/suku-kaumbangsa/
