|Close up of Green Pigeon Stamp||African Green-pigeon by Wolfgang Hartwig|
When I purchased the set of four stamps from Ivory Coast, I listed this stamp as showing Madagascar Green-Pigeon (Treron australis), because the name given on the stamp is "Treron Vinago Australis".
While checking for changes which have been made as a result of implementing the Clements list, I noticed that this stamp was listed on Kjell Scharning's site as African Green-Pigeon (Treron calva).
I also found that it was listed as such in Flight 14/4. I queried the identification of this Pigeon, and Kjell responded as follows :-
I am happy to accept this, as I can now include this stamp in my collection. I have scanned an image of the Madagascar Green-Pigeon from Sinclair and Langrand's "Birds of the Indian Ocean Islands" (1998).
