A new goofy thing about the wild turkeys I’ve seen (and heard) this spring. Here’s this comic on my site.
Thanks for your comments on my last post — so interesting!
Crested Pigeon (Ocyphaps lophotes)
Also known as the top notch pigeon, the crested pigeon is a species of pigeon found throughout mainland Australia. Like most doves and pigeons the crested pigeon is often found on the ground in small to large flocks feeding on seeds, grasses and insects. When in flight the crested pigeon makes a distinct whistling sound when it beats its wings this is thought to draw a potential predators attention to a bird in flight so the other members of the flock have time to escape. During the breeding season males will preform elaborate mating displays using their wings and heads to attempt to attract a mate.
