Common Bronzewing
Native and common in Australia
...can live in almost any habitat.
Phaps chalcoptera
(L 12-14")
Phaps is Greek for

The common bronzewing pigeon has a mournful coo 
It sounds like a very soft repeated boo 
Though far from endangered not seen everywhere 
In parts of the countryside they are quite rare.
