Brief Summary

Little is currently known about the biology of the white-naped pigeon. Observations in the field have reported that it generally occupies the mid to upper levels of the forest, rarely descending to ground level, and feeds on berries and fruit. Records of its reproductive biology are limited to a single bird found in breeding condition during February, and a nest with one white egg located in vegetation, which had regrown after forest clearance (2).
