Grey-fronted Green Pigeon

Treron affinis

The Grey-fronted Green Pigeon, Treron affinis, presents a striking figure amidst the lush forests of the Western Ghats in India. The males of this species are distinguished by their reddish mantles, while the females wear a more subdued green mantle, blending seamlessly with the verdant foliage.

Identification Tips

When observing these birds, one may note the sexual dimorphism in their plumage. The male's reddish mantle is a key feature to look out for, contrasting with the female's green mantle. This difference aids birdwatchers in identifying the sexes in the field.


This pigeon favors the forested regions, where it finds sanctuary in the dense canopy of the Western Ghats, a biodiversity hotspot in India.


Grey-fronted Green Pigeons are often seen alone or in small groups. Their flight is characterized by swift, direct movements, punctuated by regular wingbeats and occasional sharp flicks typical of their kind. They are known to consume seeds and fruits from a diverse array of plant species.


The species constructs a simple stick nest within the branches of a tree. Here, the female lays a clutch of two white eggs, which will soon give rise to the next generation of these forest dwellers.

Conservation status

The Grey-fronted Green Pigeon is currently classified as Least Concern by the IUCN, indicating a stable population within its natural habitat.

Learning Birding with Birda
I’m relatively new to birding as a hobby, and Birda is a great way to keep track off all the species I see. I’m still working on my ID skills, but the app is great for figuring out potential species, and the online community is so friendly and helpful. Definitely recommend Birda to both early and serious birders! 🐦
