Hi Kurtis and others
Yes Brown Cuckoo-doves can be very tame at times. Some time ago I was filming one at Dharug NP (on the outskirts of Sydney) on video. I was able to get so close that I was almost able to give it a nice pat on the back (its head filled the whole TV screen). What frightened it though was when a mob of Sulphur-crested Cockatoos flew over and it then moved off.
