As specified, the search was conducted as part of the Lost Birds Project, a collaboration between BirdLife International, ReWild, and the American Bird Conservancy. The organization aims to rediscover more than 150 species of birds that have not been declared extinct, but have not been seen for at least ten years.

The scientists set up camera traps around the region and one was placed on top of a mountain at an altitude of 975 meters above sea level in a densely forested area. Experts believed that this was not the best place, but a hunter from a local village said that it was there that he heard the cry of an animal, similar to the description emitted by pheasant-pigeons. After some time, researchers found two representatives at the same time on camera records, which were recorded by camera traps at a distance of several kilometers from each other.

Now Search for Lost Birds has called for necessary action to protect the endangered bird. Although Ferguson is an undeveloped island, logging operations sponsored by international corporations can pose a major threat to native species. In addition, predators such as feral cats can destroy both pigeon pheasants and other native animals.
