Kalij pheasant taxonomy

The Phasianidae is a family of ground-living birds like partridges, tragopans, junglefowls, peafowls and chickens.

The family Phasianidae was first introduced by Thomas Horsfield M.D. (May 12, 1773 – July 24, 1859), an American physician and naturalist, in the year 1821.

The family Phasianidae is tentatively divided into four subfamilies, viz., Perdicinae, Meleagridinae, Phasianinae and Tetraoninae. The subfamily Phasianinae was described by Thomas Horsfield.

The subfamily Phasianinae comprises sixteen genera, including genus Lophura. The genus Lophura was introduced by John Fleming DD FRSE FRS FSA (10 January 1785 – 18 November 1857), a Scottish minister, naturalist, zoologist and geologist, in the year 1822.

The genus Lophura is polytypic and comprises ten species including Lophura leucomelanos. The species Lophura leucomelanos was introduced by John Latham (27 June 1740 – 4 February 1837), an English physician, naturalist and author, in the year 1790.

Origin, geographical range and distribution

These Nilgiri imperial-pigeon species are endemic to India. They are distributed in the Western Ghats of south west India. They occur in the states of Tamil Nadu, Kerala, Karnataka, Goa and southern most Maharashtra.

Ecosystem and habitat

These Nilgiri imperial-pigeon species have high forest dependence. They normally occur in altitudes from 0 to 2000 meters.

The natural ecosystems and habitats of these species include tropical and subtropical moist lowland forests, evergreen forests, tropical and subtropical moist montane forests and dense deciduous forests.

Diet and feeding behavior

The diet of these Nilgiri imperial-pigeon species consists mainly of fruits. Wild fruits, berries, figs and wild nutmegs are their primary food.

These imperial-pigeons are highly arboreal. The fruits are plucked and swallowed whole. Occasionally they go to the ground to drink. They are known to visit salt-licks.

Reproduction and breeding habits

The breeding season of these Nilgiri imperial-pigeon species is from January to May (Rasmussen and Anderton 2005).

These imperial-pigeon species are monogamous. The nesting sites include fork and branches of trees. The nest is a flimsy platform built with sticks and twigs.

The clutch contains one or two eggs. Both the parents incubate the eggs. The nestlings are fed with crop milk, a thick cheesy substance, derived from sloughed off squamous cells from the crop of both male and female birds.

Migration and movement patterns

These imperial-pigeon species are non-migratory resident birds. The populations in higher altitudes descent to lower levels in winter.

Post breeding, the juveniles may disperse and establish in new locations within the range. Within their range they may make local movements for feeding and breeding.

  • Other names: Nilgiri Imperial-pigeon
  • Distribution:endemic to southwest India
  • Diet and feeding habits: fruits, berries, figs, nutmegs
  • IUCN status listing: Least Concern (LC)

Conservation and survival

The global population size of the Nilgiri imperial-pigeon (Ducula cuprea) has not been quantified. The overall population trend of the species is considered to be decreasing.

In most of its range, this imperial-pigeon species is reported as not uncommon. The generation length is 6.6 years. Its distribution size is about 108,000 sq.km.

Habitat alteration, fragmentation and destruction, deforestation, human intrusions and disturbance and capture for pet-trade are the main threats that are endangering the survival of these species.

IUCN and CITES status

The Nilgiri imperial-pigeon (Ducula cuprea) does not approach the thresholds for being Vulnerable, either under the range size criterion, or under the population trend criterion or under the population size criterion.

The IUCN (International Union for Conservation of Nature) has categorized and evaluated the imperial-pigeon species and has listed it as of "Least Concern".

The CITES (Convention on International Trade in Endangered Species of Wild Fauna and Flora) status is ‘Not Evaluated’ for the Nilgiri imperial-pigeon (Ducula cuprea).
