Wonga Pigeon

A secretive bird in spite of its size and powerful build, the Wonga Pigeon lives on the ground in deciduous forest and rain forest. Here, it ean often be detected by its penetrating call note. This sound is repeated continuously until the bird senses an approach, when it becomes silent. It normally avoids danger by walking, often covering considerable distances on the forest floor. Otherwise, it may take flight for a short distance, then watch from a perch. Wonga Pigeons are seen singly or in pairs or in larger numbers at a good food source. They eat fallen fruits, berries, and seeds.
