The Spinifex Pigeon is a bird found in Australia. There are only two Australian pigeon species that possess an erect crest: the Spinifex Pigeon and the Crested Pigeon. The Spinifex Pigeon is smaller. Generally they live in stony areas with low woodlands and spinifex grasses. Nomadic and terrestrial, they are seed eaters, dependent on waterholes recharged by wet season monsoonal rains and showers.
