34 Of The World’s Most Beautiful Types Of Pigeons

We commonly think that the pigeons we see in cities are the only type of pigeons that exists. In fact, the truth is far different. There are many beautiful and unusual pigeon species on this planet, waiting to be discovered.

You can see in the pictures below some of the rarest and coolest pigeons you’ve ever laid your eyes on. Pigeons in general are quite interesting too. It is believed that the city pigeon, known as the rock pigeon, has been the very first bird that was domesticated by us. They have this belief as the rock pigeon is featured in many figurines, mosaics, and coins since around 4500 BC.

We can all admit that we don’t exactly see pigeons as smart. In fact, we couldn’t be more wrong. A study in 2017 proves that pigeons actually are capable of knowing the concepts of space and time, something quite complex for most species.  In addition, their navigating skills are incredible They can find their way back to their nests from 1.3k miles (nearly 2.1k kilometers) away. And what’s cooler, they can do that even if they are taken from their nests and have no clue about the direction they’re following. Sounds amazing, doesn’t it?

In ancient times, the pigeons were actually trained by the Greeks to carry the results of the Olympics. That way, sports fans always knew about the results.

To conclude, we can all agree on the fact that pigeons are extremely adorable and mysterious at the same. Now, we invite you to see the pictures below and let us know what you think about these fashionable pigeons.
