Amboyna or Sultan's Cuckoo-Dove

Macropygia [amboinensis or doreya] (= Macropygia amboinensis) (Linnaeus, 1766)

The Slender-billed Cuckoo-Dove, or Brown Cuckoo-Dove (Macropygia amboinensis) is a dove in the genus Macropygia. In Australia, it is sometimes called "Brown Pigeon" or "Pheasant Pigeon", but both are best avoided, as they can lead to confusion with the brown doves and the true Pheasant Pigeon. The taxonomy of the Slender-billed Cuckoo-Dove is disputed, and some authorities split it into two species: M. amboinensis (Slender-billed Cuckoo-Dove) of eastern Indonesia and Papua New Guinea, and M. phasianella (Brown Cuckoo-Dove) of eastern Australia from Weipa and Aurukun in the north to Bega in the south, and most inland at Atherton and Toowoomba.
