Identification

POWERED BY MERLIN

Attractive small dove of humid forest edges and clearings in tropical lowlands; in some places wanders into small rural villages. Typically rather wary, and most often seen in fast, rather direct flight, as singles or pairs. Powder-blue male is striking and distinctive. Female is most easily identified when with the male. On lone females, note the rusty rump and rather long rusty tail.
