The Grey-fronted green pigeon (Treron affinis), is a species of pigeon in the Columbidae family. It is found in the forests of the Western Ghats in India. Many authorities have split the species from the pompadour green pigeon complex.

Behavior

The grey-fronted green pigeon usually occurs 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.
