    White-crowned pigeons are a large slate-gray bird with a conspicuous white crown and an iridescent green scaled nape. The distribution of the white-crowned pigeon ranges from south Florida through the West Indies and the Caribbean coast of the Yucatan Peninsula. The Florida population is estimated at about 7, pairs. Instead, their concern was the white-crowned pigeon, an imperiled species that thrives in the Caribbean, which offers their favorite sustenance: tropical hardwood tree fruit.

      Abstract: The White-crowned Pigeon (Patagioenas leucocephala) is now considered a Vulnerable species in the Cuban Red Data Book. The species was historically widespread in the Cuban Archipelago. Most of the research on the species is from the s and early s, but in the last 25 yr no study has been done to update its current status. We made a general assessment of the species in Author: Martín Acosta, Lourdes Mugica. Wildscreen's Arkive project was launched in and grew to become the world's biggest encyclopaedia of life on Earth. With the help of over 7, of the world’s best wildlife filmmakers and photographers, conservationists and scientists, featured multi-media fact-files for more t endangered : Aves.

    The book provides the results of eighteen years of study, and original field work. It assembles all current knowledge about pigeons in Australia and represents a landmark in pigeon biology. The bulk of the book is devoted to individual accounts of Australia's twenty-two native, and three introduced, species. The International Union for Conservation of Nature (IUCN) Red List Category and Criteria lists the global population of the white-crowned pigeon, Patagioenas leucocephala, as Near Threatened. The threat is due to intense habitat degradation and deforestation. In the Caribbean much of the threat is in the form of hunting, poaching and habitat loss.

In this paper we examine the diet of nestling White- crowned Pigeons and the relative contributions of crop milk and fruit during different stages of their development. We hypothesize that White-crowned Pigeons maintain crop-milk production throughout the nestling period to supplement the fruit diet.Unless you happen to be a white-crowned pigeon, poisonwood isn't something you want to mess around with, let alone touch.
