Bronze Wing Pigeon Protecting Its Nest from Marauding Pied Butcher Birds

Bronze Wing Pigeon Protecting Its Nest from Marauding Pied Butcher Birds

Common Bronzewing
Phaps chalcoptera
Columbidae

The Common Bronzewing is most often seen while it is feeding as it walks along bush tracks or quiet country roads, pecking at fallen seeds on the ground. Although seeds from wattle trees are its favoured fare, bronzewings will also eat the seeds of many other trees and shrubs. When they are flushed from the ground, their wings make a loud clattering or clapping sound as they take off, and their flight is strong, swift and direct, before they land in a tree nearby.

Identification
Description

Common Bronzewings are medium-sized, heavily built pigeons. The male has a yellow-white forehead and pink breast. Both sexes have a clear white line below and around the eye and patches of green, blue and red in the wing, characteristic of all bronzewings. The Common Bronzewing is a cautious pigeon, and rarely allows close approach. If startled, it flies away with a clatter, keeping low to the ground while moving in a steady, direct manner. Young Common Bronzewings are duller and browner than the adults. The metallic wing patch is absent or not easily seen.

Similar Species

Common Bronzewings can be distinguished from the similar Brush Bronzewing, P. elegans, by their pinkish-grey breast, light brown nape and back, and pale throat (rather than grey breast and chestnut nape, back and throat).

Location
Distribution

Common Bronzewings are one of the most plentiful and commonly seen pigeons in Australia.

Habitat

Common Bronzewings are found in almost every habitat type, with the exception of the most barren areas and densest rainforests. Common Bronzewings are normally seen alone, in pairs or in small flocks, and are rarely found far from water.

Behaviour
Feeding

The Common Bronzewing feeds on seeds and other vegetable matter. The birds feed on the ground and in small parties. These small groups need to drink frequently, and visit waterholes during either the day or night.

Breeding

Common Bronzewings build an untidy nest of sticks and twigs. It is normally placed low down in a tree or bush, but may be up to 20 m above the ground. The creamy-white eggs are incubated by both parents. Both adults also share the care of the young birds, which are born naked and helpless and are completely dependent on their parents. Bronzewings, like other pigeons, secrete a special milk-like substance from their crop, which is fed to the young chicks.

Outback Survival Tip – The Australian Water Tree – these trees are all around Australia, if you ever get lost in the Australian Bush or in the Outback – keep an eye out for the Australian Water Tree, they always have these large bumps or bulbs on them… usually they will carry around 50 litres of fresh water to survive on. They have saved many a life in the Aussie Bush! Video here: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=3AV7KrKj0Jg
