Identification

POWERED BY MERLIN

Rare, colorful forest dove found in southwestern Ecuador and northwestern Peru. It is mostly reddish-violet with a darker purple back and wings and paler forehead and belly. If seen poorly, it might be mistaken for White-tipped Dove or Pallid Dove, but note the purple (not brown) back and the more rosy underparts. Inhabits dry, deciduous forest as well as humid forest, and may be only a seasonal visitor in some areas. Typically encountered walking quietly on the forest floor, but may ascend to a low perch to sing. Song is a soft, low-pitched, descending coo.
