Tooth-billed Pigeon

Didunculus strigirostris (Jardine, W 1845)

The tooth-billed pigeon, also known as the manumea, is a large pigeon found only in Samoa. It is the only living species of genus Didunculus. Phylogenetic studies indicate that it is the most basal living member of the clade Columbidae. A related extinct species, the Tongan tooth-billed pigeon, is only known from subfossil remains in several archeological sites in Tonga. The tooth-billed pigeon is the national bird of Samoa and featured on the 20 tālā bills and the 50 sene pieces of the 2008/2011 series. Source: Wikipedia
