The Crested Pigeon is has adapted well in our urban landscape, found widely throughout mainland Australia. This pretty and stocky pigeon makes a statement with its thin black pointy crest. With grey-brown feathers on most of its body, its underbelly is a soft rosy pink. Its wings are barred with black and decorated with glossy green and purple patches… I couldn’t include these patches without making the bird too small in the drawing, so you’ll have to google it to see for yourself 😛 When it flies, the Crested Pigeon makes a characteristic whistling sound produced by air passing over a modified primary feather on its wing. When it lands its wings its tail in the air. Very dainty ♥
