Viral Video: Gymnast Pigeon Performs Backflips

Viral Video: A video of a pigeon doing a backflip is going viral, stunning Twitter users. The 11-second clip has astounded Twitter users and amassed more than 7.4 million views on the platform within hours.

The white and blue pigeon is initially seen spreading its wings getting ready to act, and then performing 3 backflips in a row. The bird achieves the feat with its wings outstretched. Looking at the video, many users said the bird looks like it has practiced the backflips for a while, waiting to go viral!

The video has been shared by the Twitter page The Figen with the caption “The best backflip ever!” The 11-second clip shows the pigeon landing perfectly on the ground after every backflip – like a gymnast.


Netizens were amazed by the pigeon’s special performance and have flooded the comment section a flurry of comments.

“Oh come on! You fly already. Now you’re just showing off,” said a user.

“Gymnastics well done,” tweeted another.

Many users wanted to know how this is possible for a bird.

According to an article in the Universities Federation of Animal Welfare, the roller and tumbler breeds of pigeons are special and have the innate ability to perform backflips.

“The roller and tumbler breeds of pigeon have been selected for tumbling behaviour in flight, to the extent that some tumblers can no longer fly but, instead, tumble as soon as they intend to take wing,” the article stated.

“The consequences to the birds are difficult to assess but are clearly adverse when they lead to injuries due to hitting the ground or tumbling over it,” it added.
