The bill of a Pigeon is slender and rounded, and is usually short, with a fleshy growth at the base. The plumage is thick with metallic glints, and varies in appearance from the uniform browns and grays of many temperate-zone species to the bright hues and bold patterns of tropical forms. In most species the male and female look alike.
