Identification

POWERED BY MERLIN

A large pale pigeon primarily of montane and foothill forests; often occurs in small flocks and found high in trees. The banded tail is unique among pigeons in its range. It also lacks the ruddy shoulders and white wing-stripe of Plain Pigeon. White-crowned Pigeon is distinctly darker. Calls include a soft, deep “oooOOO-hooo” and a throaty “croo-croo-croooo,” both of which are quite different from the “HOOO-hoo-hoooo” of the Plain Pigeon.
