Identification

POWERED BY MERLIN

A distinctive, very large gray pigeon with a small patch of red skin around the eye and a barred belly and undertail. Back blackish-gray, head and breast much paler gray. A shy species, found singly or in pairs in the interior understory of hill and mountain forests. Confined to the island of Sulawesi, where no other large gray pigeon displays barring on the belly or red skin surrounding the eye. Gives a very deep “wooo” call, repeated often.
