Brown or Philippine Cuckoo-Dove

Macropygia [phasianella or tenuirostris] (= Macropygia phasianella) (Temminck, CJ 1821)

The brown cuckoo-dove is a dove in the genus Macropygia found in Australia from Weipa and Aurukun in the north to Bega in the south, and most inland at Atherton and Toowoomba. It is sometimes called the "brown pigeon" or "pheasant pigeon", but both terms are best avoided, as they can lead to confusion with the brown doves and the true pheasant pigeon. It was one of three new species defined when the slender-billed cuckoo-dove was split in 2016. Source: Wikipedia
