Artist's Description

The Rose-crowned Fruit-Dove is a small, compact dove, with a short tail and rounded wings. Its name comes from the deep pink cap or forehead, which is bordered behind by a narrow yellow stripe. The upper body is bright green and the under-body orange and yellow with a rose-coloured patch. The throat and upper breast is rough grey. In flight, dark underwings contrast with the yellow body and band on the end of the tail. The female is similar, but lighter. This species is also known as Pink Cap, Rose- or Red-crowned Fruit-Pigeon.
Rose-crowned Fruit-Doves feed on fruit high in the canopy and can be very hard to see. Often they are only detected by their calls or the sound of fruit dropping to the ground.
They are also listed as vulnerable in NSW.
