Madagascar Blue Pigeon, the Comoro Blue Pigeon and the Seychelles Blue Pigeon. The latin name of the Mauritian Blue Pigeon is Alectroenas nitidissima which means "unmarried wild pigeon" ('unmarried' because this genus looks distinctly different from other pigeon species) and nitidissima: "the most handsome", "the neatest". It was also called "Pigeon Hollandais" because the colours of the bird are the same as the colours of the Dutch flag: red, white and blue. It became extinct around 1830. More
