I haven't heard them make any sounds. Lucky you! Were they courting?

Al lthe time when we were there. ;)
Too bad that I couldnt catch that on video. It was too amazing.
But I found another video with some funny children :D

Thanks for that! It's a lot like regular pigeons' courtship, even more like woodpigeons, but on steroids. Adorable.

Cool shot. He's just chilling in the shade... or maybe he was trying to hide from photographers like you, haha. I like that you didn't capture him smack in the center, here. Everything looks much more interesting off to one side.

I'm glad you like the composition, I wanted to show a bit of the jungle-like environment of the pavillion beside the pigeon itself. I also considered cropping more aggressively to zoom in more on the face, but in the end I didn't want to lose any of the magnificent head feathers. The bird wasn't disturbed or timid in the least, it was just chilling out.
