Endemic to the Canary Islands, where it is found in laurel and tree heath forests on mountain slopes. Shy and difficult to observe unless flushed. Plumage is largely gray with a purple-pink breast band. Smaller than the co-occurring Laurel Pigeon from which it differs in having contrasting wings with dark flight feathers, a dark tail with a gray band and yellowish eyes. Gives deep, hoarse coos, quite different from those of Laurel Pigeon.
