Image of a large (40cm) bird taken on the island at Sportsman Creek wildlife refuge. “One of the shyest and wariest of pigeons. Voice a soft, high-low “whOO-wuk, whOO-wuk”. Favouring rainforest and cleared land with abundant Camphor Laurel species. Status is scarce, although abundant in northern New South Wales”. Although occasionally heard, a first time sighting for the property.
