The crested pigeon is a native Australian bird that sports a mohawk. Not as full and lush or as over the top as the yellow crest of the cockatoo but still great nonetheless.
Normally I wouldn’t have a second glance at a pigeon but these rockin’ winged critters are unique to Oz and are super cool to watch strut about. Recently, we were able to catch the mating dance of the male courting a female. I wan’t able to capture a video but found this one online to share: https://youtu.be/efBgsLmTTpw
I can’t help but hear Green Day whenever I see them. Love them and their little crest! Our little Jack loves them too:
