    Where do those birds go at night? For Peaceful Dove, they do have a very peaceful life at night…

    Hi YiXiong,

    Nice documentation of the peaceful dove’s roosting behaviour. I wasn’t aware they roost socially. I wonder if there is a "pecking order"? I have seen 9 Bushy-crested Hornbills roosting on the same branch. The adults take centre, and the juveniles take the outer edges 8-)

    Hi Con,

    I have no idea about their pecking order. But the first one seems quite alert compared to others! :smile:

    Cheers!

    Hi YX,
    Nice shot. I didn’t know they have a night watchman to when they’re sleeping? Thanks for sharing.

    Either on night duty or it has mastered the skill of sleeping without its eyes closed! Thanks for this first-timer Yixiong, never seen them like this before!
