St. John Birds: Scaly-Necked Pigeon

These big birds seem to enjoy flying around my manjack trees eating the ripe berries. They’re so big that they make a lot of noise flying through the leaves looking for a perch where they can get their beaks on the berries. They make their nests in the trees , but only lay one or two eggs at a time.

  1. I think they make all the noise on purpose. I get small flocks jumping tree to tree playing tag and the racket seems to be part of play. It goes on for hours.
