An enormous pigeon of lowland and foothill rainforests in SE New Guinea. Recently split and little known. Huge flattened crest. Body is blue-gray, including the shoulder and throat. Chest is maroon. Prominent white mark on the wing is not as bright as Sclater’s Crowned-Pigeon. Forages on the forest floor in small groups for fallen fruit. Unmistakable and does not overlap with other crowned-pigeons. Call similar to Sclater’s; a loud 2-note booming, sounding like a beating heart.
