The Victoria Crowned Pigeon is named after Queen Victoria. This bird has earned its royal name on looks alone.
The Victoria Crowned Pigeon is about 25 to 30 inches long and weighs in at around 5 pounds. Not a big bird, but noticeable.
They eat off of the ground. They don’t fly up into the air for food.
The Victoria Crowned Pigeons hail from New Guinea.

The first map is a world map is modified by Rodrigocd. You can see New Guinea above Australia. The second map will make the location easier to spot. I didn’t want to draw on this map because it is so lovely. Australia is on the lower right.
