This cosmic dance of bursting decadence and withheld permissions twists all our arms collectively, but if sweetness can win -and it can- then i'll still be here tomorrow, to high-five you yesterday, my friends. Peace.

Victoria crowned pigeon (Goura victoria)

The Victoria crowned pigeon is part of a genus of three unique very large, ground-dwelling pigeons native to the New Guinea region. The bird may be easily recognized by the unique white tips on its crests and by its deep ‘whooping’ sounds made while calling. Its name commemorates the British monarch Queen Victoria. The Victoria crowned pigeon is now the most rarely occurring of the three crowned pigeon species in the wild, although it is the most widely kept species in captivity. Perhaps the most pressing threat to the species is continuing habitat loss due to logging.
