Cool Animal Sounds: Victoria Crowned Pigeon

When I posted about this beautiful species of pigeon yesterday, I read about their somewhat interesting vocalizations but didn't bother to do some searching to find out if I could have a listen. Well, today I checked out the calls of this blue bird. Their mating display, as described in the post, involves bobbing of the head and tail accompanied by a very low, booming sort of call, sometimes described as a boom-pa call. However, since these birds are fairly small, they can't boom like some other species.

Bird mating displays are always fascinating.
