A small fruit-dove of mangroves and disturbed forests in the lowlands. Bright orange forehead, white throat, gray chest which extends around the back of the neck, and pale purple spots on the wing. Small flocks often seen flying quickly over mangroves. Superficially similar to Beautiful Fruit-Dove, but Orange-fronted Fruit-Dove is found in more disturbed habitats and has a green rather than yellow belly and no dark red band. Call described as a series of soft “hoo” notes.
