Yellow Footed Green Pigeon

People often do not realise that many birds that we commonly see also have cousins (sub-species) that are not often seen. Like this yellow footed green pigeon clicked by Paneendra BA in Guwahati, Assam, which is a fairly unknown cousin of the common grey pigeon. While the common pigeon has adapted itself to live in cities, this pigeon is still found mostly in wilderness areas, often hidden amidst the leaves of berry or fig trees and very hard to spot. See if you can find one, next time you go out for a trek.
