This photo is taken from the website http://www.wildasia.org/main.cfm/library/Kuala_Gula_Birds. I almost captured the photo of a Pink-Necked Green Pigeon (scientific name: Treron vernans) on my camera yesterday when I passed by the Water Garden. Unfortunately, before my camera could focus on the bird, it flew off. Frankly, that was the first time I saw this pigeon in HortPark. In fact, it was the first time I saw this beautiful pigeon in my life! My colleague said he spotted this bird at the Irrigation Pond area before, so it looks like I have to pay some attention to the area. A link on this bird is attached below:
