The yellow-footed green pigeon (Treron phoenicoptera), also known as yellow-legged green pigeon, is a common species of green pigeon found in the Indian subcontinent. It is the state bird of Maharashtra.[2][3] In Marathi it is called Hariyal. The species feeds on fruit, including many species of Ficus. They forage in flocks. In the early morning they are often seen sunning on the tops of emergent trees in dense forest areas.

Hello Manish, and welcome to TN.
What an impressive first post of this beautiful Yellow-footed Green Pigeon. I can only imagine how pretty a spectacle an entire flock must be while inflight. The bright yellow feet are certainly an unusual feature, yet so attractive to view. Excellent focus showing much detail and gorgeous colors. I love the natural habitat in which you photographed this wonderful specimen. Well done!!

Bonjour Nanish,
Le cadrage me semble un peu trop large mais le sujet est tout de même bien valorisé dans son environnement.
A bientôt sur TN pour de nouvelles aventures.
