This stunning bird wanders freely around the Reptile House at Chester Zoo.

He's actually really hard to take a photo of because he never stops nodding his head!

Does anyone know what type of bird it is?

UPDATE: Thanks to Vishwa Vishwathan I now know this is a 'Victoria Crowned Pigeon'

If you like animal photos I've also created a dedicated Facebook page for Chester Zoo photography that I'll start updating more regularly:
