Fascinating! These pigeons can't really fly. They come in two types. There are the Parlor or Ground Tumblers, which do one or two somersaults, coming to land squarely on their feet. The second type is the Parlor Roller, which performs a continuous backward roll in one direction. Distance competitions are held for Parlor Rollers.
