PDV+10 obs.
~14:00 hrs.
Large, long-tailed Columbid seen flying up to dead spruce trees. Found perched-bird facing away from us. Long tail with distal half pale gray; inner part dark gray. Prominent white band across base of nape. Crown dark (didn't seem green in mist.) Yellow bill with outer 1/3 black. Mantle obviously darker than pale gray tail. Did not see chest or other underparts. Bird flew down into thicket, presumably to feed. Not relocated by our group, or, apparently, any other bird-watchers. Terrific rain night before our observation. Bird seen for 6-10 min., at less than 40 meters.
