Goura Victoria

I am the Queen !

by supergold

The Victoria crowned pigeon is a large, bluish-grey pigeon with elegant blue lace-like crests, maroon breast, and red irises. It is part of a genus of four unique, very large, ground-dwelling pigeons native to the New Guinea region. Its name commemorates the British monarch Queen Victoria.Victoria crowned pigeons are incredibly beautiful in size and plumage. The ?crown? or crest feathers on the top of this bird?s head first draws people?s attention. The crest is made of loose, lacy feathers in royal blue, tipped broadly in white ? similar but not exactly like a peacock?s tail. These fanlike crests are spectacular. Their long tails give the bird a regal appearance.
