The Fancy pigeon Portugal Tumbler – or also known by the names: Portuguese Tumbler, Culbutant Portugais, Portugiesischer Tümmler, Capitombolante...
Tumbler pigeons are breeds of domestic pigeons that were selectively developed for their ability to somersault or roll backwards during flight.
Why Do Tumbler Pigeons Tumble?
Tumbler pigeons tumble as it is a genetic trait. Some pigeons are thought to have developed rolling in the wild as a survival mechanism to avoid birds of prey. This ability has been passed on from the races that first used it to the next generations.
