Identification

POWERED BY MERLIN

A large, long-tailed brown dove with a pale brown head and underparts and darker rufous-brown upperparts. Male displays limited barring on breast and a pale iridescent neck patch. Females show extensive barring on neck. Singles, pairs, and small groups inhabit forests, edges, gardens, and woodlands from sea level to the foothills. Larger than Black-billed Cuckoo-Dove and paler on underparts, without tail barring. Larger than Mackinlay’s Cuckoo-Dove, without breast spotting. Smaller than Great Cuckoo-Dove, with brown underside, unlike that species. Gives an incessant “whop-whop-whop-whop…”.
