Strange birds

Gorgeous birds they had over there, some I had never seen before, like these two

Those birds are indeed strange! Nice capture!
I know these birds.

They are "Victoria crowned pigeons".

They come from Papua New Guinea, it was a British colony in the past.

The birds were named after Queen Victoria.

There are many "great" animals/ plants named after her in the 18th century. wink
I do love that blue, and it looks great set against the green.
