Emerald Dove foraging

Emerald Dove (Chalcophaps indica) feeds mainly on seeds and fruits. These are picked from the ground, although it may occasionally be seen in trees feeding on the fruits. It forages on the ground, either walking around or running, alone or in pairs. Occasionally it also takes invertebrates like insects and snails.
