NE Brazil: Plumbeous Pigeon
While the species is widespread and common in South America (though this photo is of the Atlantic Forest subspecies), I can't recall ever having good views of one, since its heard more often than seen. Apparently surprisingly little is known of this pigeon’s general ecology and breeding.Thus I was thrilled to get it at eye-level, feeding peacefully on these fruits. Serra Bonita, Bahia, Brazil.
