Identification

POWERED BY MERLIN

Fairly small pigeon, pinkish-rufous overall, darker on wings. Sexes alike. Heard more often than seen, but sometimes perches conspicuously atop the canopy. Found in forested areas, generally at lower elevations. Where range overlaps with the very similar Short-billed Pigeon, Ruddy tends to be found at higher elevations. Also note slightly different voice: a clipped hooting song, “hit the foul pole!”
