Emerald Dove

It has been ages since I last posted anything on pigeons and doves.  So here is an Emerald Dove Chalcophaps indica in an uncommon state of being perched on a bare branch.  Usually it is walking on the ground while searching for food or it is flying fast and low, away from you.  Over the last years, I have been having much more sightings of this bird and in a variety of habitat, from 1,800m on Mt Kinabalu down to the islands off Kota Kinabalu.  Signs of an healthy population?
