Wompoo Fruit Dove

Ptilinopus magnificus

Named for their hooting call, these fruit doves are more often heard than seen. Despite their brilliant colors, they are hard to see in their forest canopy. Males and females look alike and are usually found in pairs, rather than flocks. They are able to acrobatically collect fruit from trees and eat it whole.
