Distinctive pale gray dove with black feather edges giving a scaly appearance. In flight has striking rufous flight feathers and a tricolored (black, gray, and white) tail. The song is an easily remembered continuous repetition of “pow-co-pow". Very common; found in open areas, forest edges, grasslands, and urban areas.
