Identification

POWERED BY MERLIN

A chunky, iridescent, deep-purple dove of dense forests and coffee plantations. It is typically found on the ground walking among the leaf litter, sometimes in company of Ruddy or Key West Quail-Doves. Its unstriped head, white forehead spot, and iridescent purple body eliminates other species within range. Song is a “oop-oop…” given without pause, sometimes for several minutes.
