China's high-flying pigeons can be divided into regions: Gangu high-flying pigeons in Gansu, Sichuan Leshan high-flying pigeons and Yangzhou 18-tailed high flying pigeons. Chinese pigeons can be divided into black spot, Red spot and blue spot according to their feather colors. All of these varieties have many things in common. Take the black spot as an example: the plumage is white, the tail is black, and the top of the head is centered on the front of a tuft of black hair, hence the name spot. Due to the geographical area, the Nasal Tuft pigeon has evolved into many branches, such as hairy feet Nasal Tuft, Tianjin big Nasal Tuft, Old Beijing , Beijing-Tianjin small Nasal Tuft and so on. There is a difference between four claws and five claws due to the different number of claws.
