Pigeons - Columbimorphae

The extinct Dodo relative the Rodrigues Solitaire skeleton, Tooth-Billed Pigeon, Rock dove or pigeon, and the crowned pigeon. 

Pezophaps solitaria, Didunculus strigirostris, Columbia livia, Goura cristata, Pterocles alchata and Syrrhaptes paradoxus skeletons.

 

Whilst the evolutionary group of pigeons may feel uninteresting, the presence of such rarities as the Dodo and Rodrigues Solitaire makes it a worthwhile group to study.
