This pigeon breeds on small islands from the Bay of Bengal to New Guinea, although it will visit the coastal areas of larger islands to feed. It prefers mangrove swamps and wooded areas.

They feed mainly on wild nutmegs and nuts from various palms and travel in flocks of 12-20.

One white egg is laid.
