Sula Cuckoo-Dove

Turacoena sulaensis

The Sula cuckoo-dove, known scientifically as Turacoena sulaensis, is a distinguished member of the Columbidae family. This avian species is uniquely native to the Sula Islands and the Banggai Archipelago within the enchanting realm of Indonesia.

Identification Tips

When observing the Sula cuckoo-dove, one should note that prior to the year 2016, it was regarded as a mere subspecies of the white-faced cuckoo dove. However, it has since been recognized as a distinct species, a testament to the ever-evolving understanding of avian biodiversity.

Habitat

The Sula cuckoo-dove graces the Sula Islands and the Banggai Archipelago, where it has evolved and adapted to the local conditions, making these Indonesian islands its exclusive home.

Distribution

Endemic to its Indonesian range, the Sula cuckoo-dove is a species that has carved out a niche for itself in the Sula Islands and the Banggai Archipelago, a testament to the rich tapestry of life that thrives in these isolated locales.

Conservation status

As of my knowledge cutoff in 2023, the conservation status of the Sula cuckoo-dove has not been explicitly detailed. However, as with all species with a limited range, one must consider the potential vulnerability to environmental changes and human activities.

As a young birdwatcher who was always keen to be apart of a community but never seemed to find one, my problem was solved downloading this!!! Everyone is so friendly and just as excited to see birds as me 😁

Great app for beginner twitchers
I’ve had a passion of photographing birds for a long time now but have only just gotten into proper birdwatching, and this app is brilliant for those just getting started. There is a great sense of community among users and the app is very easy to use and professional. Awesome app altogether

A Friendly Place
I love using the bird app, I have a pretty good knowledge of birds. But I do have some gaps in it, so it’s nice to have a safe space to check on a sighting to confirm the species. It’s really enjoyable and I love the badges you can collect. It’s like a real life Pokémon go.

Learning Birding with Birda
I’m relatively new to birding as a hobby, and Birda is a great way to keep track off all the species I see. I’m still working on my ID skills, but the app is great for figuring out potential species, and the online community is so friendly and helpful. Definitely recommend Birda to both early and serious birders! 🐦

Fun way to add to your birdwatching experience
I enjoy watching birds in my backyard, but this app helped me really pay attention while on vacation this summer. It was fun to add new birds to my bird watching app.

Birding and wellbeing app
Birda is an excellent platform to share your love of Birding and is a great tool of encouragement for a Birding Beginner like me. Birda has a very kind and supportive community of Birding enthusiasts. For me BIRDA is not only a BIRDING but also a WELLBEING App.
