Identification

POWERED BY MERLIN

A robust, gregarious, and black-trimmed white bird of open woods and towns where it often perches high on the bare branches of trees or on power/telephone lines; often found in flocks of ten or more. No similar species occurs in the Caribbean portion of its range. Aberrantly white individuals of other pigeon species lack the black tail and wings seen on Pied Imperial-Pigeons. Song is very low in pitch and includes “woo-oo-woooo,” with the last syllable drawn out; loud at first and then trailing off.
