We can see nature’s amazing creations everywhere we look on this incredible planet.

It is easy to see why nature is considered the planet’s greatest artist. Here’s a proof:

We are awestruck by the Victoria Crowned Pigeon.

It proudly wears a crown on its head that is bright blue, in addition to its brilliant plumage.

This bird species can grow to be as large as an adult turkey.

These magnificent pigeons, which are native to New Guinea, got their name from Queen Victoria of Britain, a historical figure who ruled the UK at the end of 19th century.

These rare birds are difficult to find in the wild. They are also endangered in their natural habitats due to deforestation.

This species was therefore listed as Near Threatened on the IUCN Red List of Threatened Species.

A female can only lay one egg per season, which is not good for population growth.

Their mating dance is unique and as complex as one would expect from a fancy bird.

The male of the species approaches the female to courtship and bows first. This is to display his beautiful crest.

Then, he performs a well-choreographed mating song that involves a rhythmic swing of his tail and intensely wagging his tail.
