Little Green Pigeon or Punai Daun grooming

Punai Daun or Little Green Pigeon perching on a Cempedak branch in late afternoon sun.
Location : Cempedak Hill, Zone G

 Here's more shots of the Punai Daun grooming.  This is female of the species.  These birds can be seen throughout Borneo or Bintulu for that matter.  In the early morning or late afternoon, they often perch at the Cempedak tree branch from where they broadcast their soft whistling calls.  The adult female is greenish while the male has attractive dark maroon back and wing coverts.
