I never would have thought a pigeon could be so beautiful!
This is the Victoria Crowned Pigeon. Tasikoki has rescued a small handful of these amazing birds from the wildlife trade. They are hunted for their meat and plumes and are also taken out of the wild for sale. Their cousin the dodo went extinct a long time ago. Hopefully we can change things so these majestic birds don’t follow in the dodo’s footsteps.
