Wild pigeon in relative safety and comfort

Large leaves of the Ong Lumok (Artocarpus odoratissimus) and purple curtains  of Congea velutina.

A lovely pair of the Little Green Pigeon
 The Little Green Pigeon is beginning to adapt itself to the greenery at the garden. On many occasions during this January and February I saw a pair of these lovely birds finding comfort in the shade of the tall Ong Lumok tree (Artocarpus odoratissmus).  There among the large leaves of the Ong Lumok and vines of the Congea velutina the birds hide and rest in relative safety.  They are seen in the early morning and late afternoon.  How I wish they start building a nest which is a good test that these wild pigeon birds if given proper habitat can also survive in town gardens.
