Date : 8 June 2020

Bird Family :Columbidae - Pigeons & Doves
Red Data Status :Least Concern
Remarks :Went back to search for these pigeons and to obtain a better look. The iris, in the close-up, is orange. Wells (1999) says that in adults: outer ring of the iris cream pink, orange-red, bronze or bronze and the inner ring blue, colour changing according to excitement level. This bird was quite comfortable with my presence and was collecting nesting material. I heard and recorded more calls, often responsive. - Amar
