Identification

POWERED BY MERLIN

Large, chunky dove with big white corners to the tail. Although common, it is shy, most often seen when flying away along a road or a forest path. Found in all types of forest and degraded habitats with woody vegetation. Voice is a series of hollow, rising “hoooo” notes, with a brief pause between each note. Pinkish and rufous coloration is unlike that of any other dove in its range.
