Love is in the air. Literally. The Victoria crowned pigeons are feeling the romantic aura of February.
Our love story begins as any does...with Victoria crowned pigeons. Boy pigeon sees girl pigeon. Girl pigeon sees boy pigeon. Boy pigeon shows typical breeding behavior, like swinging his head up and down while simultaneously wagging his tail feathers...normal stuff. The rest is history.
These two spend the entire day walking together, eating together, sitting on branches together, they are simply always together! And now their love story is taking the next step...nest building!
Due to habitat loss, illegal hunting, and illegal trapping, their species is listed as Near Threatened on the IUCN Red List. We are thrilled their love story bloomed and continues to bloom.
