Identification

POWERED BY MERLIN

Subtly beautiful shuffling pigeonlike bird with a small head, striking black belly and pale breast that contrasts with white underwings and black wingtips. Tail is relatively short. Males have a gray head and neck and an orangey throat while females have spotted necks. Both sexes have a broad creamy breast band. Most often seen in the mornings when they visit water sources, sometimes in huge flocks, in deserts and semi-deserts with low vegetation.
