BROWN CUCKOO-DOVE


BROWN CUCKOO-DOVE
Macropygia amboinensis 40 cm

         In Australia the Brown Cuckoo-Dove is an abundant resident of rainforests.

         It is most numerous around forest edges, where shrubby pioneer trees provide reliable food sources. 

         It eats mainly small fruits, of plants including Bleeding Heart, Celerywood and Wild Tobacco.

         The name cuckoo-dove refers to the elegant, long-tailed shape of this and related species.

    Brown Cuckoo-Doves are seen most days feeding on the lower branches of trees in   the rainforest clearing at Chambers Wildlife Rainforest Lodge .
