This Pigeon is not an ordinary one; when it makes a sound, it is deep and loud, it is so majestic. This bird is large as well. We found three of this huge pigeon, two were fighting for one female. As they flew up to the highest point of the tree, both male Pigeons would flap their wings to challenge each other. From the top, they beat each other with their powerful wings, hitting each other significantly, free falling to the ground and suddenly; they both stop to land on a branch and they start all over again.
