    This stunning bird is known as the Southern crowned-pigeon, and belongs to the species Goura scheepmakeri (Columbiformes - Columbidae). 

    Its most prominent feature is the striking headdress of blue-grey, lacy feathers, with the rest of the plumage also primarily blue-grey; its breast and belly are rich maroon. A black ‘mask’ sits around the red eyes, and its legs and feet are purplish-red.

    The Southern crowned-pigeon occurs in the southern lowlands of New Guinea (Indonesia and Papua New Guinea). It is a fairly sociable species, usually encountered in small groups of three to seven individuals, although large flocks of up to 30 have been observed in the past.
