A big pigeon with a green back and tail, a pale gray head and underparts, and a noticeable white eye-ring. Inhabits a limited range in the south Moluccas. Singles or pairs occur within forest and forest edge in the lowlands and hills. Unmistakable, as it is the only large pale gray and green pigeon within its range. Vocalizations include an “ooWOO” call with a purring quality to the second syllable. Also gives a descending series of short “oo” notes.
