Identification

POWERED BY MERLIN

Medium sized dove with a scaled metallic copper patch on the hind-neck. Gray face and neck, with a pinkish belly. Juveniles have a less obvious patch on the neck, and with more muted plumage and an eye-line could be confused with the much larger Common Bronzewing. Forages on the ground in small groups. This species is abundant in woodlands, towns, parks and gardens in northern Australia. Voice is often a repeated 6-note phrase (low-low-high low-low-high).
