CRESTED PIGEON Pair (Ocyphaps lophotes) - ©Lip Kee
The Crested Pigeon is greyish in colour with thin erect black crest. The wings have bronze patches. It is the only grey Australian pigeon with slender crest that stands upright most of the time on the top of their head.
Their most distinctive behaviour is the beating and whistling sound their wings make when they take off. This is most likely to draw the attention of predators to birds on the wing, and away from any birds remaining on the ground and as an alarm call to other pigeons.
