A large, long-necked, long-tailed dove with a dark rufous-brown back, wings, and tail that are extensively barred. Paler rufous on the head and buffier below, with extensive barring in male birds, though female and juvenile birds are only faintly barred or lack barring below. Singles, pairs, and groups occur within canopy of forest and forest edge in the lowlands and foothills. Unlike Little Cuckoo-Dove, the larger Timor Cuckoo-Dove shows noticeable barring above (and below in males). Gives a short, three-note burry call, rising at first, then falling on last notes: “whoOP-woo-hoo.”
