Identification

POWERED BY MERLIN

Very local, poorly known, and elusive dove of humid evergreen forest in foothills and mountains of Sierra de Los Tuxtlas, near Catemaco in southern Veracruz. Feeds mainly on the forest floor, walking quickly away or flushing explosively from close range. May be seen beside quiet trails early and late in the day. Heard more often than seen. Note the white face with a black whisker, and blue-gray hindneck and breast. Formerly known as Purplish-backed Quail-Dove.
