Royal pigeon

The Victoria crowned pigeon is much different than the average pigeon you see flocking the streets of New York City or Milan. This blue bird is the largest of all living pigeons—as tall as a turkey—and gets its name from the crest of feathers on its head. Crowned pigeons’ unusual calls range from a threatening rumble to a loud boom returned by flock members.
