Picui Ground-Dove Columbina picui

Sections

The Picui Ground-Dove is found in central South America east of the Andes as well as in central Chile west of the Andes.  The species is found in a variety of open forest and shrubland habitats, as well as towns.  The Picui Ground-Dove is usually found either when flushed off the ground or when it sings singing the hollow, tooting song.  It is small and brown with conspicuous white patches on the upperwings, and like other ground-doves, the Picui Ground-Dove is fairly shy and skittish.
