a.k.a. New Zealand Pigeon

This handsome denizen of New Zealand and surrounding islands is larger and longer tailed than the Wood Pigeon.
Mostly feeds on fruits, berries flowers, etc. in the branches, though it occasionally will feed near the ground.
It lays only a single egg and has a longer incubation (28 days) than most pigeons.
