Pigeons with crests, like the cowl on this Old German owl pigeon, carry a mutation in a single gene that causes feathers on the neck and head to grow in the wrong direction. Credit: Courtesy of Sydney Stringham

The usual suspects. I must say domestic/feral rock doves (what pigeons are) are highly unappreciated by most folks. Have you ever really looked at the beautiful iridescence?
One of my favourites are wood pigeons. They are docile and mate for life. Did you know they also drink through their beaks like straws? No other bird does that! (Only the pigeon family)
Aww...isn't it romantic?
Love is in the air, even for pigeons! Chipp'd for Love can help you seal that love connection, just ask Percy!
