Descriptions
Identification
Bird was not seen but this was where I had seen them before on the previous 2 occasions. I had been playing call to try to draw the bird out but they did not show themselves. After about 10 minutes I did hear the call of the cinnamon headed green pigeon. It was not loud so the bird was not near. I heard it call 2 to 3 times but was not able to get a recording and even if I did, it would probably be too soft for my mobile to pick up. I would say I am familiar with the pink necked green pigeon's call and this was definitely not it. The first ID that came to mind when I heard the call was that of the Cinnamon Headed Green Pigeon. https://xeno-canto.org/605661 this call from xeno-canto is the call that I heard.
