Victoria crowned pigeon


These elegant birds sport blue-gray feathers and a maroon chest. With a crown of white tipped feathers, the bird has a regal appearance- fitting, since the Victoria crowned pigeon is named to commemorate Queen Victoria, the United Kingdom’s second longest reigning monarch.
