The white-crowned pigeon is a species of bird in the family Columbidae . It inhabits the northern and central Caribbean islands and some places on the North and Central American mainland. John James Audubon painted the pigeons, including the watercolour in his work ''Birds of America'', published in the early 19th century.

The white-crowned pigeon can measure 29–35 cm in length, span 48–59 cm across the wings, and weigh 150–301 g . It is around the same size as the common rock.. more
