Tanna Ground-Dove

Alopecoenas ferruginea (Forster, JR, 1844)

The Tanna Ground Dove (Gallicolumba ferruginea), also known as Forster's Dove of Tanna, is an extinct dove species. Its taxonomic affiliation is uncertain but at its first scientific discussion by Johann Georg Wagler in 1829 it was classified into the genus Gallicolumba (which includes Ground Doves and Bleeding-hearts); its closest relative is possibly the Santa Cruz Ground Dove. It was endemic to the Pacific island of Tanna, Vanuatu (formerly the New Hebrides). Forster records a native name mahk, almost certainly from the Kwamera language. Source: Wikipedia
