White-faced Quail-Dove (Zentrygon albifacies)
White-faced Quail-Dove (Zentrygon albifacies) monotypic
Pigeons and Doves (Columbidae)
El Triunfo, Chiapas (Chp), Mexico
Adult. Unique in the area, but could otherwise be confused with a Leptotila dove, especially Gray-headed Dove. The present species, however, has a more iridescent reddish body and the scaly neck side. It also has a more round body shape. Was pretty common around the camp, though it was heard more often than seen.
