Location Chaparrí Lodge, Chaparrí Private Conservation Area, Lambayeque, Peru
Comments A very attractive little dove, which we saw quite often during our trip. They are common in western Peru, up to about 2800m on west slope of Andes. Birds of Peru by Schulenberg et al. describe it's call as "a very undovelike series of flatulent notes" which describes it admirably - sounds a lot like a frog (a farting frog ...)

Tree of Life Media Use Survey

The information you provide in this survey will help us improve the ToL media collection. We are trying to find out what kinds of people are using our images, movies, sounds, etc., what they are using them for, and what we could do to make the collection more useful to them.

How do you use this image? If you are a teacher/professor/librarian: At what level do you teach/learn? How old are you? Where in the world do you live/learn/teach? Do you have any suggestion on how we could improve the Tree of Life media collection?
