The ‘Victoria Crowned Pigeon’ Is One Of The Most Beautiful Birds Ever And Can Grow To The Size Of A Turkey

Probably no one would argue that humans are naturally attracted to beautiful things. And how else could it possibly be when we live on this gorgeous planet where every corner is beaming with nature’s splendid creations, whether that be a scalding hot African desert or a tropical forest immersing with rainwater. It’s all very varied but undoubtedly peculiar in the craziest directions. It’s no wonder why some say mood is the world’s greatest creator and we completely agree with that. We have loads of beautiful nature artifacts here on Bored Panda but today’s story is wonderful proof of how splendid it can be.

This fancy bird here is a Victoria Crowned Pigeon. And we recognize the vision of it is nothing you would expect after reading” a monkey “. It really is distinct with its bright blue plumages and a beautiful crown on top of its principal. It belongs to a Goura family of four unique-looking, ground-dwelling pigeon species. They are too very large as they could reach the size of a goose!

This particular species is native to the New Guinea region and got its distinct name to commemorate a great historical person- the British Queen Victoria who ruled the UK in the last decades of the nineteenth century.

These birds are hard to spot ranging wildly as they are the least occurring of all the three crowned pigeon species but are most widely multiplied in confinement. Deforestation is a great threat to their habitat and therefore, the genus is included in the IUCN Red List of Threatened Species as Near Threatened.

The fact that female glamours lay only one egg per mating season “isnt exactly” helping their survival as well. Furthermore, their mating dance is as intricate as one could expect from such a conception bird.

As he approaches the female during wooing, the male Victoria Crowned Pigeon Male bows his head in order to show off his best feature- the splendid tuft. And what ritual would it be without a distinct mating song and a good choreography of rhythmically swinging while acutely wagging its fanny like the beautiful soul he is. Nature sure is a magician!
