Audubon’s illustration of the White Crowned Pigeon depicts a male feeding a female perched on the flowery branches of a Geiger Tree.
The White Crowned Pigeon is only local to the Florida Keys, and is a fruit eater. With a slate blue sleek body and a stark white feathered head, the White Crowned Pigeon bears little resemblance to it’s city cousins.
John James Audubon painted the White Crowned Pigeon while on a trip to the Florida Keys in the 1830’s.
