The Crested Pigeon (Ocyphaps lophotes, also commonly known as the Top Notch Pigeon) is a regular visitor to the Chateau. They make an amazing helicopter sound when they are flying. They are very confident little birds and are not intimidated by others. We love feeding them.
This one seemed to enjoy having his/her photo taken.
I draw your attention to the pattern on the wings and the tiled roof pattern in the background.
