This beautiful russet-brown bird is quite large, growing up to 43cm. It is a type of┬ápigeon that has a long tail and a loud call. Its habitat is the rainforest and forest on the edge of Australia’s east coast from the top end (Cape York) down south to the Victorian border. This one is attracted by the wild tobacco plant of which they seem particularly fond.
