My Feathered Friend

He looks at me curiously with his gorgeous pink eyes- then turns around to show his colorful plumage that would make anyone awestruck. A splash of orange and pink add a beautiful touch to his olive green wings. This elegant fellow is called the Pink-necked Green Pigeon (Treron vernans).

I think its safe to say he’s my friend. A friend who stops by at the same tree everyday just outside my window. After he takes a moment to say hello, he will preen his feathers carefully before he’s off!

Sometimes its just nice to know, after a tiring day at school, I can come back home and open the windows; and this tree will have my feathered friend to greet me. He knows exactly the right moment to come, when I really need it.

I’d like to think he was calling out “Goodbye! Have a good day!”

      1. Haha yes, what an apt description! Missed him today.. hope to see him tomorrow. Its especially nice to watch him during exam time 🙂

  1. This is a very pretty pigeon. In the UK, common Wood Pigeons are much maligned by many, but I find them extremely entertaining. We have a pair, that spend a lot of time in our garden, and they are great fun to watch.

    1. Thank you so much! I feel very blessed, yes 🙂 Also, thank you for stopping by my blog, I really like yours! Looking forward to reading more of your posts!

    1. Yes, it definitely does! It’s lovely to have a garden because you see the same birds come to their favorite flowers and spots everyday.
