Identification

POWERED BY MERLIN

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.
