Male Common Emerald Dove (Chalcophaps indica) by alabang, on Flickr

The Common Emerald Dove (Chalcophaps indica) is a pigeon which is a  widespread resident breeding bird in the tropical and sub-tropical parts  of the Indian Subcontinent and east through Myanmar, Thailand, Malaysia  and Indonesia, to northern and eastern Australia. The dove is also  known by the names of Green Dove and Green-winged pigeon. The Common  Emerald Dove is the state bird of the Indian State of Tamil Nadu.

It has a number of subspecies, with three existing in Australia,  longirostris from the Kimberly, Western Australia to Cape York  Peninsula, chrysochlora from Cape York Peninsula to southern New South  Wales as well as Norfolk Island and Lord Howe Island, and natalis from  Christmas Island.

This is a common species in rainforest and similar dense wet woodlands,  farms, gardens, mangroves and coastal heaths. It builds a scant stick  nest in a tree up to five metres and lays two cream-coloured eggs.  Breeding tends to occur in Australia spring or early summer in  southeastern Australia and late in the dry season in northern Australia.

Its flight is fast and direct, with the regular beats and an occasional  sharp flick of the wings which are characteristic of pigeons in general.  It often flies low between the patches of dense forest it prefers, but  when disturbed will frequently walk away rather than fly. They are  particularly good weavers when flying through forests. When flying they  expose a buff underwing and a chestnut colour of their flight feathers.

The Common Emerald Dove is a stocky, medium-sized pigeon, typically 23  to 28 centimetres (10 to 11.2 inches) in length. The back and wings are  bright emerald green. The flight feathers and tail are blackish, and  broad black and white bars show on the lower back in flight. The head  and underparts are dark vinous pink (in chrysochlora, more brown in  longirostris), fading to greyish on the lower belly. The eyes are dark  brown, the bill bright red and legs and feet rufous.

Philippine Eagle (Pithecophaga jefferyi) by alabang, on Flickr

The Philippine Eagle (Pithecophaga jefferyi), also known as the Monkey-eating Eagle, is an eagle of the family Accipitridae endemic to forests in the Philippines. It has brown and white-coloured plumage, and a shaggy crest, and generally measures 86 to 102 cm (2.82 to 3.35 ft) in length and weighs 4.7 to 8.0 kilograms (10.4 to 17.6 lb). It is considered the largest of the extant eagles in the world in terms of length, with the Steller's Sea Eagle and the Harpy Eagle being larger in terms of weight and bulk.[2][3] Among the rarest and most powerful birds in the world, it has been declared the Philippine national bird.[4] It is critically endangered, mainly due to massive loss of habitat due to deforestation in most of its range. Killing a Philippine Eagle is punishable under Philippine law by 12 years in jail and heavy fines.
