The colourful appearance of this Yellow-footed Green Pigeon (Treron phoenicopterus) is bewitching. But its shy nature, green plumage, and tendency to perch high up on the trees, makes it easy to be missed. However, that has not stopped it from being named the state bird of Maharashtra, the local name being Hariyal. As figs are its favourite meal, banyan and peepal trees are the places to look for this bird.
