Identification

POWERED BY MERLIN

A unique small, colorful fruit-dove confined to Obi island. Pale gray head contrasts with mostly emerald-green body, except for gray markings on the wings and back, a deep maroon belly patch, and a lemon-yellow vent and undertail. An odd, fleshy wattle of protruding yellowish skin above the bill (“caruncles”) is distinctive. Found in canopy of forest, forest edge, and nearby secondary growth in the lowlands. Gives a distinctive soft, deep, guttural call, “gu-rOW,” the first note often soft and hard to hear.
