This stunning bird of a feather belongs to a Goura family of four unique-looking, ground-dwelling pigeon species. And can grow to the size of a turkey.

This beautiful creation of nature is called “Victoria Crowned Pigeon”, and is native to the New Guinea region. Its distinct name commemorates a great historical figure – the British Queen Victoria who ruled the UK in the last decades of the nineteenth century.

This bird is a rare sight, as most of them are bred in captivity. Deforestation is a great threat to their habitat and therefore, the species is included in the IUCN Red List of Threatened Species as Near Threatened.

Also lessening their survival rate is the fact that a female, only lays one egg per mating season. Furthermore, their mating dance is as intricate as one could expect from such a fancy AF bird.
