The Black-naped Fruit-dove is distributed in Indonesia, Malaysia and the Philippines.

The female usually lays one single white egg.

The Black-naped Fruit Dove is classified as Least Concern. Does not qualify for a more at risk category. Widespread and abundant taxa are included in this category.

The habitat of the black-naped fruit dove is located in tropical or temperate climates and includes forests, forest edge, and scrub lands (Sibley and Monroe, 1990; Schleucher, 2002). Individuals often are found in agricultural areas or on isolated fruit trees (del Hoyo et al., 1997; Schleucher, 2002). The black-nape fruit dove has been observed to migrate locally to regions of high food abundance. The black-naped fruit-dove subsists on fruit and berries, especially figs. More
