Most handsome pigeon 😎
Victoria Crowned Pigeon from northern New Guinea is the world's largest pigeon and widely regarded as some of the most handsome of all pigeons! It has blue-grey feather with deep maroon plumage below and striking red eyes. However the true splendour of this bird comes from the magnificent fan shaped crest of lacy feathers on their head, so large and beautiful that it has sadly attracted widespread hunting of the species!
This pigeon is monogamous and tend to mate for life. Males can become very aggressive towards each other during mating season. They show off their beautiful feathers to attract females by dancing around, wagging their fanned tails, and bobbing their heads #victoriacrownedpigeon #pigeon #singaporezoo
