The beautiful Emerald Dove is the official State Bird of Tamil Nadu. It is quite common but as its very shy and secretive, is rarely seen. Emerald Doves feed on fallen fruit and seeds (including grass seeds, figs and bamboo). They also eat tidbits like termites.

Emerald Doves usually forage on the ground, mostly under tree cover. Sometimes, they cautiously venture out onto open grassland to forage, but will scuttle back into the undergrowth at the slightest hint of danger.

When several are drawn to a food-rich areas, each maintains a small feeding territory. More
