Scaly (Inca) Dove

Scardafella squammata

It is a long-tailed, scaly little dove. Most of the time walking on the ground. When pecking it almost scrapes with its bellie over it. It feeds mostly on small seeds. Alert, when disturbed it flushes off in a rush. It sings and loafs in scrubby thickets and trees.
