Location: Papua New Guinea
Black-naped Pheasant-pigeons live in rainforest in the hills from sea-level at at least 1900 m, have pheasant-like in habits and feed on seeds and fallen fruit (del Hoyo et al. 1997, Gibbs et al. 2001).
Forest on Fergusson is relatively intact, however small-scale habitat loss occurs as forest is converted for subsistence agriculture gardens.
