Ghosts of Gone Birds // All Tropical Comp (Part Three)

Last but by no means least this is the Mauritius Blue Pigeon native to (rather obviously) Mauritius, they became extinct in the 1830's. It would seem that we are not so responsible for this one – although habitat destruction and hunting are factors – with the blame for their extinction largely goes to Macaques. I wish all pigeons looked like this, Trafalgar Square sure would be a more interesting place if it were so.
