Victoria Crowned Pigeon

Goura victoria

The Victoria crowned pigeon is quite spectacular, named for the tall, wispy fan of feathers it raises on top of its head. The largest of all living pigeons, the Victoria crowned pigeon gathers in small flocks to forage for fruits and berries that have fallen to the forest floor.
