These varieties are grouped as the Tumbler pigeon species. Small, stocky, rounded head, short beak, low, wobbly neck; elegant, reliable. Small-looking, but always looks elegant and not timid. Its trademark is a crest of feathers (muffled) that clings to the nape and is almost always on the thighs or legs. The head is round, the beak is very short, the eyes are round with a circular cavity, but the tail appears longer than the proportion of the body as a whole. There are no jabots or tufts of hair on the front of the neck. It is a very powerful flyer.
