The Gray-Headed Dove (Leptotila plumbeiceps) is a resident breeder from eastern Mexico to western Panama. It is most frequently found on the ground, although it is equally arboreal, and occurs in a variety of forest types. The grey-headed dove is 24 cm (9.8 in) long and weighs 150 g.
The adult has a grey crown and neck. The upperparts and wings are olive-brown, and the underparts are pinkish shading to white on the belly. The tail is broadly tipped with white. The bill is black and the legs red. Young birds lack the grey on the head.
