A medium-sized ground-dove of lowland and foothill forest. Reddish back and wings interspersed with pale blue-gray, diagonal bars. White from throat to belly, edged with black and a messy yellow-orange smudge in the center of the chest. Bobs its head as it walks actively on the ground foraging for seeds and sometimes invertebrates, including worms. Flutters wings when alarmed. Pale, diagonal bars in the wing differentiate it from any other ground-dove. Call, a deep, warbling trill, getting lower and softer at the end. Reminiscent of Eastern Screech-Owl.
