Identification

POWERED BY MERLIN

A large, unmistakable long-tailed dove with an all-dark body and a contrasting cream-colored face. Also displays a red eye-ring and an iridescent emerald green shawl on the nape. Juveniles duller, with a gray face. Inhabits upper levels of forest edge and more open wooded areas in lowlands and hills, where usually found in pairs or singly. Sometimes gives gliding display flights from treetops. Vocal, giving a three-note song: “uk-woo-wooop.” The first note is soft, making it seem like a two-note call; the last note is longest.
