Identification

POWERED BY MERLIN

A large, long-tailed, slate-colored dove with a conspicuous white face. Also note the red eye-ring and the metallic green shawl on the sides of the neck. Juvenile duller, with gray face. Usually encountered singly or in pairs, in the upper levels of trees in forests and forest edges, as well as more patchy, open wooded areas. Unique within its restricted range. Song is usually a series of six notes: “woo-ooo-woop-woop-woop” sometimes preceded by soft, short “pip-pip-pip” notes.
