Wonga Pigeon


Wonga Pigeon Leucosarcia melanoleuca.
Wonga Pigeons are reasonably common in much of eastern Australia, living in rain forest and coastal forest. They will emerge to feed on fruit and seeds the ground on walking tracks and picnic areas, but otherwise they are quite difficult to spot. You are more likely to hear them in the forest, making their distinctive woop-woop-woop-woop-woop call or clapping their wings together as they take off in a panic.
