Species: C. oenops
31-34 cm. Medium-sized, grey-and-rufous pigeon. Grey-brown head. Purplish-brown underparts, paler on throat. Grey lower belly and vent. Upperparts, inner wing-coverts and scapulars chestnut tinged purplish. Rest of wing grey, dusky remiges. Grey rump, darker uppertail-coverts. Blackish tail. Bluish-grey bill with red base.
It inhabits riparian woodland, dominated by the willow and adjacent dry forest on steep valley slopes, mainly at 850-2,400 m. It has also been recorded in degraded, humid premontane forest and around mango orchards. It appears to make limited seasonal elevational movements. Its ecology is very poorly known, with virtually no data on feeding, although it has been seen eating ripe coca seeds1, and singles and pairs have been recorded in fruiting trees.
