Living and feeding on the forest floor like a pheasant, the white-naped pheasant pigeon (Otidiphaps nobilis aruensis) flushes noisily when disturbed. Other than its typical pigeon head, it resembles more a small ground fowl. Its long moaning coo, also uncharacteristic of a pigeon, carries a long distance through the forest.
