Their range in eastern Australia runs from near Cairns in Queensland down to eastern Victoria, preferring rain forest habitats.
If disturbed they produce explosive wing-claps when taking off.
The call is a loud, high-pitched coo repeated over and over and over. Ed. note: I was near one for half an hour and it never shut up. One of the most annoying bird calls I've ever encountered.
