Also known as: African Fruit-Pigeon, Bare-faced Green Pigeon, Delalande's Green Pigeon, Green Pigeon
The African Green Pigeon is a species that lives across a wide range in the southern two-thirds of the African continent. They have a primarily green plumage, which serves to camouflage them as they search for fruit, especially figs, in leafy trees.
Like other pigeon species, the African Green Pigeon nest is a fragile collection of twigs. They nest in tree forks where they lay 2-3 eggs per brood.
African Green Pigeons are typically gregarious, foraging together in small groups.
