The Andaman green pigeon (Treron chloropterus), is a species of pigeon in the Columbidae family. It is found in the Andaman Islands. Many authorities split the species from the pompadour green pigeon complex. It has been added in the 2014 Red List of International Union for Conservation of Nature (IUCN) in July 2014.

Behavior

The Andaman green pigeon usually occur singly or in small groups. Its flight is fast and direct, with the regular beats and an occasional sharp flick of the wings that are characteristic of pigeons in general. It eats the seeds and fruits of a wide variety of plants. It builds a stick nest in a tree and lays two white eggs.
