Little Cuckoo Dove

Little Cuckoo Dove by Ck Leong

The Little Cuckoo-dove Macropygia ruficeps is a common resident of the montane forest of Borneo.  It makes  quick flights with its powerful wings and forages in mid-storey and canopy of flowering trees.  At rest, it announces itself with a distinct and repeated wook wook.  For the birder, there is a much higher chance of seeing it in flight  than perched.
