Aviary Post 2- Pigeons

On the way home from NYC back in January, I ran into the apparently now defunct "World of Pigeons." I knew that all pigeons and doves were of the same family, Columbidae, but I didn't realize how varied they were...truly a world of pigeons...until I went to the National Aviary in Pittsburgh yesterday...

Some of the Columbidae Family at the National Aviary:

  • Nicobar Pigeon
  • Pied Imperial Pigeon
  • Victoria Crowned Pigeon
  • Green-Naped Pheasant Pigeon
  • Bartlett's Bleed Heart Dove
  • Fruit Dove
