The Emerald Dove
Emerald Dove (Chalcophaps indica) - 'Punai Tanah' in Malay, to mean ground pigeon. Family : Columbidae - Pigeon family
Today I have been exceptionally lucky. For many years I have seen the 'Punai Tanah' (Malay) flying low and fast at the park but could not take a picture of it. Today it came out of the dim forest cover and gave me a glimpse of its eyes above which was a white stripe, red bill and beautiful jade green wings. I know that they are nesting at the park especially at the preserved forest area around the Provinsi Rattan near Zone I. It's presence has given me a new hope that the forest ecology at the park is gradually being rehabilated.
