Identification

POWERED BY MERLIN

A large gray-and-green fruit-dove confined to the Banggai Islands. Upperparts are forest-green and head and underparts are very pale gray, except for the wine-red vent, the tiny maroon chin, and the maroon base to the yellow bill. Found singly or in pairs in forest and degraded areas in the lowland and foothills. Combination of pale underside, miniature maroon chin, and yellow bill with a red base are unique in its limited range. Song is a long series of fast-paced “whoop” notes. Number of notes varies, but can exceed 20.
