I was watching the courtship chase and listening to the calls of a group of Little Cuckoo-Dove (Macropygia ruficeps malayana) (more than 20) when I spotted this female Barred Cuckoo-Dove (Macropygia unchall unchall). I am sure there were more in the thicket. Their social use of the same roosting sites as Little Cuckoo-Doves had previously been observed in the highlands.
