Grey-cheeked Green Pigeon

Treron griseicauda

The Grey-cheeked Green Pigeon, Treron griseicauda, is a charming bird that graces the skies of Indonesia. With a plumage that is predominantly green, it is a sight to behold as it flutters amidst the foliage.

Identification Tips

This species can be recognized by its grey cheeks, a distinctive feature that sets it apart from other green pigeons. Observers should also note the bird's overall green coloration, which allows it to blend seamlessly with the verdant environment.

Habitat

The Grey-cheeked Green Pigeon is known to inhabit the lush forests of Indonesia, where it can find ample food and shelter.

Distribution

Endemic to Indonesia, this bird has made the rich, tropical forests its exclusive home.

Behaviour

Local people in Java have observed the Grey-cheeked Green Pigeon and have developed a hunting technique using nylon, known as racik, to capture this avian wonder.

Diet and Feeding

Fruit comprises the bulk of this pigeon's diet, with a particular fondness for figs. This dietary preference has a significant impact on the bird's foraging behavior and habitat selection.

Very Wholesome App
Joined this app with a new interest in watching birds to help me find out what I was spotting. The community is very active in helping identify birds which is great and everyone is very kind so it’s just a nice wholesome community. I would definitely recommend this for any bird spotter 😄

The best bird logging app
Birda is honestly the best bird logging app I have seen. I love all the features it has from being able to do a session and log all the birds you see in one sitting, to being able to connect with other birders from all over the globe!

Great app for learning Birds
I’ve been using the app for a couple of months and love it....Someone said it’s like a real life Pokémon Go for birds. They’re not far off! It’s something that the family can do that gets you out and about. Well worth downloading no matter your age.
