The brush bronzewing is a small and colourful pigeon, around 30 centimetres long. It has a blue-grey underside, a rich red-brown back and glistening, metallic feathers on the wing.

Where

Feeding

The brush bronzewing feeds on the seeds of various plants, moving around alone or in small groups, usually not far from fresh water.

Breeding

The nest of the brush bronzewing is the usual flimsy, flat structure characteristic of pigeons. The female builds the nest on the ground, in trees or more commonly in dense brush.

Sounds

Its call is a low repeated hoop or whoo which can continue for some time.
