A very rare medium-sized ground dove of lowland and foothill forest floor on Mindoro. Iridescent bluish on the head and back of the neck, with a purplish back, a blackish wing with white triangular marks on the shoulder, a white throat and underparts, and a small red “bleeding heart” in the center of the chest. Unlikely to be mistaken if seen well. The only other dove likely to flush from the ground would be Asian Emerald Dove. Apparently gives a low “croo croo” call.
