Gray-headed Dove

The Grey-headed Dove inhabits the understory of forests, old second growth, scrubby woodland and cacao plantations. It builds a stick nest in a tree and lays two white eggs. Incubation is about 14 days, and fledging another 15.

The Gray-headed Dove is classified as Least Concern. Does not qualify for a more at risk category. Widespread and abundant taxa are included in this category.
