A Pigeon Of A Different Color

Poor American pigeons. They were stuck with bland, dull grey feathers, while they're exotic cousins got all of the colorful plumage. Take a look at this example, the Nicobar pigeon.

This pretty pigeon is found on small islands and the coastal regions of land throughout the eastern Indian Ocean. They are larger than their American counterparts, and feed on seeds, fruit and buds.
