BOLLE'S LAUREL PIGEON, Columba bollii, also called
the DARK-TAILED LAUREL PIGEON, is endemic to a limited area
of laurel and pine forests in the western Canary Islands.
There are two "Laurel Pigeons" endemic to the western Canary
Islands laurel/pine forests: Bolle's/Dark-tailed
(Columba bollii) and the White-tailed Laurel Pigeon
(Columba junoniae). Bolle's has a dark band followed by
a light band on the tail finished by a dark band, whereas
the White-tailed has no dark bands. Both are elusive, but
the White-tailed is particularly rare.
