 Pink-Headed Fruit Dove

The pink-headed fruit dove is endemic to Indonesia where it occurs in the mountain forests of Sumatra, Java and Bali.

Wild Diet

It feeds on small fruit and berries.


The dove is a shy species, generally seen singly or in pairs, but flocks of up to 15-20 birds may form at favoured fruit trees.


The species builds a flimsy nest in a tree and lays one or sometimes two white eggs which are incubated for 20 days to hatching, with a further 15–16 days to fledging. 


The pink-headed fruit dove is evaluated as Least Concern on the IUCN Red List of Threatened Species and it is not yet thought to be highly threatened.
