Identification

POWERED BY MERLIN

Plump ground-dwelling dove. Large for a quail-dove with buffy face, gray crown, scaly neck, and white throat. Body mostly brownish. Sexes alike. Very similar to White-throated Quail-Dove but no range overlap and typically occurs at slightly lower elevations. Found in the foothills and subtropical zone up to 2,500 m. Usually walks on the ground unless flushed into the lower levels of a tree. Like most quail-doves, often best seen by quietly walking along trails at dawn and dusk. Listen for low-pitched “coo” notes.
