This is the most exotic pigeon that I have ever seen! This bird could move quickly, making it difficult to capture. This pigeon is in the Houston Zoo.

    No, je suis moi, this Victoria Crowned Pigeon is a bird in the Houston Zoo. It is the most exotic pigeon that I have ever seen. I had to clean up the photo as the glass was dirty with lots of spots and handprints to remove.
