BLEEDING HEART DOVE
Gallicolumba luzonica

Range:
Philippines

The Bleeding Heart Dove gets its name from the characteristic patch of red feathers found on its breast.  At first look, people generally mistake this patch of feathers for a bloody wound. The dove’s belly is white while its back, wings and tail are an iridescent gray. These birds tend to live in a flock on the forest floor, scouring for food. They are quite shy and skittish but rarely leave the forest floor except to nest. Males tend to be larger than females.
