Nicobar Pigeon

There is a stunning bird called the Nicobar Pigeon, related to the now-extinct dodo bird, that lives in Southeast Asia and the Pacific. Because there were few predators where these birds live, they were able to evolve their plumage into incredibly iridescent colors. But new predators have been introduced in the area and this extraordinary bird is now almost threatened. My Modern Met website shows photos and tells the story here.
