The White-crowned Pigeon is perhaps one of the most aptly named birds there are. They are strikingly beautiful, complete with the contrasting colors that decorate their plumes. Their radiant white crown sits on their all-black bodies, with the right light bringing out an iridescent green sheen on the neck and a red one on the tail. They are birds of tropical habitats, mainly scattered throughout the southern regions of Florida and the islands and coastlines in the Caribbean. They are entirely dependent on islands and forests with fruiting trees, making them especially vulnerable to habitat loss.Continue reading White-crowned Pigeon
The Red-billed Pigeon is one of the most beautiful Pigeons in the world. Although in size and form they seem no different, their plumes are stunningly unique and are guaranteed to stop any fortunate observer in their tracks. They have a limited range, remaining in regions throughout Mexico and Central America almost exclusively. As a result, they are extremely rare in the United States are typically only found in the Rio Grande Valley in Texas.Continue reading Red-billed Pigeon
Band-tailed Pigeons are the forest-dwelling relatives of the commonly found Rock Pigeons. These birds inhabit the forests of the pacific coast and the Southwestern area of the North American continent. Band-tailed Pigeons are very sociable by nature and thus form large flocks. The color and the soft mellow cooing of these birds resemble that of
Rock Pigeons while flying overhead and thus they can be mistaken easily as a flock of Rock Pigeons. However, these swift flying birds can be distinguished because of their tails with a pale band at the tip, which is usually missing in Rock Pigeons.
The Black Guillemot is a seabird of the coastal regions of the North Atlantic and Alaska. Much like its name, derived from the French ‘Guillaume’ or William, it is a strong-willed shorebird with striking characteristics. This duck-sized seabird has a dramatically contrasting winter and summer plumage, both equally impressive and unique.
The rocky shorelines of the Arctic and North Atlantic see Black Guillemots diving and swimming around in leisure. For a bird species with black in its name, it is only in summer that its plumage actually turns black. The winter season is spent with a rather ice-white appearance.Continue reading Black Guillemot
