Seychelles blue pigeon (Alectroenas pulcherrimus)

The Seychelles blue pigeon is beautiful and common species throughout the Seychelles islands, but on Bird Island where this was shot I encountered only two. It is after all a small island, so perhaps they find more of what they need on the bigger islands.

Even though you might see it more often on other islands, Bird Island offers a more intimate experience as the encounters here are much more often that of the close one due to the limited land mass. On the other islands you might see it high in a tree, on roof tops or power lines.
