Identification

POWERED BY MERLIN

A plump dove that inhabits dense, moist forests in foothills and mountains. Prefers dense leaf litter, but is sometimes found along trails and roadsides. Its namesake crest is short and swept back, so it is not always readily apparent. However, it can be told from Ruddy Quail-Dove by its larger size, mostly purple upperparts, gray underparts, and lack of a bold pale facial stripe. Song is deep “hoo-oo-hoo,” with emphasis on the middle segment.
