Strikingly Stunning Birb: Victoria Crowned Pigeons Dazzle In Blue

Okay, we have seen many beautiful animals in our time, but this stunning birdmight just take the cake. "Strikingly beautiful and intelligent, the Victoria crowned pigeon is a fascinating ground bird to watch. It is common to see at a zoo or aviary. Although this is a gentle bird, it is not a bird for novices. Even pigeon fanciers and experienced bird owners need to ensure they have the dedicated space and time required by these majestic creatures." Via the Spruce Pets.

"This bird is the largest living pigeon and the closest remaining relative to the extinct dodo bird. It was named in honor of Queen Victoria for its flashy blue crown of intricate lace-like patterns and its regal poise." Who knew, this bird and the extinct dodo are cousins! It comes as no surprise to us thatthis bird was named after royalty, just look at how vibrant the color of its feathers are! Thismajestic bird looks like it was destined to sit on the throne of our hearts.  Via the Spruce Pets.

Get ready, because you have never seen a pet pigeon so cute. This little guy - a 1.5-year-old rescued seraphim pigeon named Cricket - has something that he absolutely loves to do, and that is... go to sleep. Yes, we didn't think we'd ever relate to much to a pigeon either. 

But, it's true, Cricket loves bedtime so much, he sometimes goes and puts himself to bed. And his owner managed to catch one of those times on camera, and oh my goodness, this gorgeous pigeon is so excited about bedtime, it makes us both want to rescue a pigeon for ourselves and also go to sleep early today lol.

Informative Tweets Discovering The Beauty Of Unique Pigeons

There is beauty everywhere in nature, even in the places you least expect it. You walk around outside, and every time you do, you see birds - some of them beautiful, some of them less so. But not many of you have probably stopped to admire the beauty of a pigeon. We're used to common pigeons, so we don't think about them too much, but when we see a special pigeon colored like the rainbow... well, that catches our eye. 

And it definitely caught twitter's eye, with a tweet about the pink-necked green pigeon going viral, people admiring its beauty. And luckily, there was a pigeon expert at hand to explain to us exactly what this rainbow-colored beauty is. 

tweets about the pink-necked green pigeon thumbnail includes a picture of the pink-necked green pigeon and a tweet 'Font - Rosemary Mosco (Bird And Moon Comics) @RosemaryMosco ... Replying to @RosemaryMosco Is it a pigeon or a dove? The answer is: Yes. Pigeons and doves belong to the scientific family Columbidae. Within that family, English-speaking folks basically name some species "dove" and some "pigeon" at random. Pigeons = doves. There's no real taxonomic difference. 7:13 PM - Mar 9, 2021'
