Identification

POWERED BY MERLIN

Large, rusty pigeon confined to the Marañon drainage of northwestern Peru. Its range may extend to extreme southern Ecuador, but evidence is lacking. Plumage is mostly reddish with a gray belly, shoulder, and rump. It has a red base to the bill, a red eye-ring, and a yellowish to orange eye. Compared to Pale-vented Pigeon, which is fairly common in extreme southern Ecuador, Peruvian has a red base to the bill, lacks a pale tail band, and has an undertail that is not paler than the belly. Inhabits woodland and desert near watercourses.
