Nature continues to amaze us with its fancy creatures and unusual phenomenon.
The Victoria Crowned Pigeon is one of the most attractive birds in the world. They don’t look like the usual pigeons that we are used to from childhood. Its “crown” won’t make anyone in the world indifferent. These amazing creatures can grow up to the size of an adult turkey.
These fantastic birds are native the New Guinea and got their name from a fantastic historical figure, Queen Victoria of Britain who ruled the UK towards the end of the 19th century.
However, the Victoria crowned pigeons are threatened in their natural habitat by things such as deforestation and are included in the IUCN Red List of Threatened Species as Near Threatened.
They are known for their fancy mating dances.
