The moniker Queen Victoria of Britain, who governed the UK during the end of the 19th century, was given to these magnificent pigeons, who are native to New Guinea.

These rare birds can be difficult to be seen in the nature because of facing threats from deforestation and other factors in their natural environment.

As a result, this species of birds has been classified as Near Threatened on the IUCN Red List of Threatened Animals.

Maximum egg production from the female during a spawning season is one egg, which does not promote population expansion.

They have a special mating dance that is just as intricate just like you would anticipate from such a luxurious, beautiful bird.

The species’ male bends his head to display his magnificent crest, which is his best feature, before approaching the female in an effort to court her.

Then he performs a particular, expertly orchestrated mating song that involves rhythmically swinging his tail and vigorously wagging it.
