The Bruce's green pigeon (Treron waalia), also known as the yellow-bellied fruit pigeon, is probably named after the Scotsman, James Bruce, renowned for his accounts of Ethiopian history and culture. It is found in wooded valleys, wooded savanna and other wooded habitats throughout sub-Saharan Africa from Senegal through Ethiopia and the Arabian Peninsula. It only occurs north of the equator. This pigeon specialises in consuming the fruits of just one species of fig tree, Ficus platphylla. Despite its name, the Bruce's green pigeon is not green but is grey with a light yellow breast.
