The Pink-bellied imperial pigeon (Ducula poliocephala), otherwise known as the Philippine zone-tailed imperial pigeon, zone-tailed pigeon, or the Philippine imperial pigeon, is a species of pigeon found in the Philippines. It is a fruit-eating bird. According to the IUCN Red List and BirdLife International's Red Book, the pink-bellied imperial pigeon is a "near threatened" species as of 2000. This is due to the loss of habitat and exploitation by humans.
