The pied cuckoo-dove (Reinwardtoena browni) is a bird species in the family Columbidae. It is endemic to the Bismarck Archipelago.

Formerly classified as a species of least concern by the IUCN,[2] it was suspected to be rarer than generally assumed. Following the evaluation of its population size, this was found to be correct, and it is consequently uplisted to near-threatened status in 2008.[3]
