Only large pigeon on the Chatham Islands. Shows a distinctive white belly and maroon-tinged upper wings. Can gather in large flocks to feed on paddocks in southern Chatham Island. Individuals can be seen roosting on dead trees and making display flights. Can go unnoticed when feeding on forest fruits, leaves, and flowers below the canopy. May give soft “oo” calls while perched.
