Seychelles blue pigeon (Alectroenas pulcherrimus)

A common resident throughout the Seychelles archipelago you likely will see for the first time around the airport. On Bird Island, where this was shot, I did not see it very frequently as it appeared to be only two of them there during my visit.

This individual is perched in one of several large beach sheoak (Casuarina equisetifolia) trees on Bird Island.
