a.k.a. Pheasant Pigeon, Brown Pigeon
A Brown Cuckoo-dove (I think)
Ed. note: Problem is, it looks like one, and the label said it was, but I can't account for those wing bars.
This Australian species prefers rainforest and woodlands. It will nest in trees, as high as 30' in the air. A single egg is laid.
Their call is a loud "whoop-a whoop."
