Michelle's Golden Pigeon (Columba aurea) is a species of pigeon. It was first discovered in Devonshire.[alt. univ.] It is also a common sight in some areas of Shire.

It was named after Queen Michelle of Devonshire by King Vara of Shire as the dove's beauty and sweetness reminded him of her.

Other names

It is also known as Michelle's Golden Dove.

Description

Michelle's Golden Pigeons are recognizable by their light brown feathers which appear "golden" when in flight especially when its feathers are reflected upon by the sun (as a result, giving the species its classification). They have small white and black bills, and gem-like red eyes.

The pigeons often have an emerald or turquoise coloured "bib" around their neck and breast area. Colour is more intense on males; however, it's not too different in comparison to females.

Distribution/habitat

Michelle's Golden Pigeons are widespread throughout Devonshire and in some parts of Shire. They thrive in urbanized areas; however, they're also commonly found in woodlands. Highly adaptable. The area in which it inhabits appears to have some effect on the intensity of its gold-coloured feathers.
