It is also known as Michelle's Golden Dove.
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.
Often feeds on seeds and crops. Also has a strong liking to various fruits including apples, bananas, peaches and more.
Makes a "Kur-ooo" sound.
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.
