A small fruit-dove of moist lowland and foothill forest. Crimson forehead, yellow bill, pale gray from face to chest and orange-yellow belly separated by a dark red chest band. Prefers mid-elevation forest in high rainfall areas where it forages actively for fruit at all levels in the trees. Separated from similar Ornate Fruit-Dove by yellow belly and Coroneted Fruit-Dove by its darker cap and gray chest. Call, a slow, mournful, falling “woo-ooo” or an accelerating series of quicker, seesaw “wooloo”.
