Short-billed Pigeon

Patagioenas nigrirostris

 

La Selva OTS, Heredia province, Costa Rica.

 

The common pigeon in humid rainforest in Central America. The one on the right looks to be a juvenile. It is very similar to Ruddy Pigeon (P. subvinacea; previous), but they do not occur together except for the Darién area, and they have different songs.
