Romance is in the air

A fleeting flirting moment...

Female Pink-necked Green Pigeon
 It was a fleeting flirting moment on the perch.  A male Pink-necked Green Pigeon was approached by one of his females.  She became playful for a moment.  The male pigeon was a willing partner.  The male is easily differentiated by its grey head and crown and pinkish grey neck and nape.  It has black flight feathers with its back and wing coverts green in colour.  They were seen early this morning perching on the Cempedak tree at Cempedak Hill, situated at Zone G. 
Male is at left, female at right of picture.
