Photographer : © Amar-Singh HSS
Location :secondary growth adjacent to limestone outcroppings, Perak, Malaysia
Date : 30 November 2020
English synonyms:Pink-necked Green-Pigeon, Pink-necked Pigeon
Bird Family :Columbidae - Pigeons & Doves
Red Data Status :Least Concern
Remarks :I spotted this large fruiting Ficus benjamina at the same location as the Spiderhunters I have been posting. I was surprised at the number of Pink-necked Green Pigeons that came; in excess of 120. They arrived in 7-8 waves of 20+ each time, and this allowed me to get a rough estimate. In the past I have only seen smaller flocks of 10-15 at such fruiting trees. - Amar
Taxonomic Notes :Monotypic.
