White-faced Cuckoo-dove (Turacoena manadensis) - HBW 4, p. 147
French: Phasianelle de Manado
Spanish: Paloma Cariblanca
Other common names: White-faced Black Cuckoo-dove, Sulawesi/White-faced Black Pigeon, White-faced/White-headed(!) Pigeon
Taxonomy: Columba manadensis Quoy and Gaimard, 1830, Menado, Sulawesi.
Genus generally regarded as being related to Macropygia, and indeed sometimes included within it; however, this has been questioned, and similarities in coloration noted with some members of Columba species, e.g. C. vitiensis. Closely related to T. modesta with which presumably forms a superspecies. Birds of Banggai and Sula Is have sometimes been awarded a separate race, sulaensis, as averaging very slightly smaller, but validity doubtful. Monotypic.
Distribution: Sulawesi and small islands off NE, as well as Togian Is, Muna and Butung, Banggai and Sula Is.
