An earlier post document the pre-roost behaviour of Pink-necked Green-pigeons (Treron vernans) on top of a large tree LINK.
I took it for granted that they would not gather when it rains. Well, I was wrong. The rain was not that heavy and it got lighter with time. Then it came in a drizzle. Looking from a distance, I saw a few green-pigeons perching on the end of branches of this tall tree in one of my neighbour’s garden. They were sitting still, soaking in the rain drops.
When the rain stopped the initial few green-pigeons started to preen. They were soon joined by others that flew in and out in a sort of social get together – frolicking, a little of courting and some aggression.
