Forest Dove

Aplopelia simplex (Hartlaub, 1849)

The Lemon Dove or Cinnamon Dove (Columba larvata) is a bird species in the pigeon family (Columbidae). It differs from the other African pigeons of the genus Columba by its terrestrial habits and the white face and forehead of adult males; it is therefore sometimes separated in the genus Aplopelia. Some treat the Gulf of Guinea populations (São Tomé Lemon-dove) as a separate species C. simplex (or A. simplex), others as subspecies of C. larvata. In the latter case, the species as a whole may be called simply Lemon-dove, and if Aplopelia is considered a valid genus it would then be monotypic. Source: Wikipedia
