Identification

POWERED BY MERLIN

A large fruit dove of forest on islands. Distinctive looking with gray neck and chest, dark red cap, and orange belly with white chest band. Travels in small flocks in search of fruiting trees in which it forages actively. Similar to Rose-crowned Fruit-Dove, although the race that coincides has no rose-crown. Wallace’s Fruit-Dove differs in having an obvious white chest band. Typical of fruit doves, it leans forward and puffs out its chest when vocalizing. Call, a descending “wooo”.
