Nicobar Pigeon

Even if city streets are overrun with pigeons: there are other kinds - and some of them are adorable! The Nicobar pigeon can be found on the Nicobar Islands (a group of islands in the Indian Ocean), in the Philippines and New Guinea. Its feathers shine in a breathtaking mix of green, yellow-green/yellow-orange, turquoise, blue and light blue. They also have a metallic sheen, which is lovely to look at.
