Identification

POWERED BY MERLIN

A plump, attractive brown pigeon with beautiful green and bronze iridescent coloration in the wings. Males have a bright yellow and white forehead that is absent in females. This species inhabits a great variety of habitats, and is often seen near a water source, alone or in pairs. When disturbed, they fly away in very direct flight with a loud clatter of wings. They only feed on the ground.
