text: Today we set out on tour towards the Chang country. It was a sultry waterish day and it is clear that the rains are by no means over yet. The fields were full of villagers cutting or threshing the rice. As we went through the forest, Zehovi shot a green pigeon. It had crimson feet, a blue and mauve beak and its soft feathers shaded from a greenish yellow breast and head to ashen grey and fulgous wings.
