Identification

POWERED BY MERLIN

A large, long-tailed dove with buff underparts barred from throat to undertail and uniformly earth-brown upperparts. Male shows a brown nape and head, females a pale head and a barred nape. Juvenile like female. Found in forested lowlands and forest edge. A recently described species restricted to a handful of islands in the Flores Sea, and possibly southwest Sulawesi too, where the completely barred underside of Flores Sea Cuckoo-Dove would distinguish it from Sultan’s Cuckoo-Dove. Gives a single-noted, burry “wooooaaa.”
