Pink-necked Green Pigeon

The Pink-necked Green Pigeon (Treron vernans) have built their nest in my garden around end of Mar 2017. The nest is flimsy because it is only an assembly of some twigs, perching dangerously on one of the branches. Initially there was only one egg, but the next day, another egg appeared. The colourful male bird is the one incubating the eggs in the day time and the female with duller feather (suppose to be, cannot see clearly at night) take over through the night.

I try to check on the nest daily to make sure the eggs are intact because the nest look so unsafe with just a few twigs, but most of the time the male is incubating the eggs, very still and unmoving. Then one day, while trying to locate the nest, I was confronted with the big fat bottom of the male bird then I take the hint to stop being a busybody.
