Okay, we have seen many beautiful animals in our time, but this stunning birdmight just take the cake. "Strikingly beautiful and intelligent, the Victoria crowned pigeon is a fascinating ground bird to watch. It is common to see at a zoo or aviary. Although this is a gentle bird, it is not a bird for novices. Even pigeon fanciers and experienced bird owners need to ensure they have the dedicated space and time required by these majestic creatures." Via the Spruce Pets.

It was named in honor of Queen Victoria for its flashy blue crown of intricate lace-like patterns and its regal poise." Who knew, this bird and the extinct dodo are cousins!
