(In Thai: นกเปล้าหน้าเหลือง)
The ashy-headed green pigeon (Treron phayrei) is a pigeon in the genus Treron. It is found from Nepal, northeast India and Bangladesh to southwest China, Myanmar, Thailand, Laos, and Vietnam. Many authorities split the species from the pompadour green pigeon complex. It has been added in the Red List of IUCN in 2014.
The ashy-headed green pigeon usually occur singly or in small groups. Its flight is fast and direct, with the regular beats and an occasional sharp flick of the wings that are characteristic of pigeons in general. It eats the seeds and fruits of a wide variety of plants. It builds a stick nest in a tree and lays two white eggs.
