The "face" in this breed refers to the distance between the center of the eye and the corner of the mouth.

The Berlin Short-faced Tumbler is a breed of fancy pigeon developed over many years of selective breeding.[1] Berlin Short-faced Tumblers, along with other varieties of domesticated pigeons, are all descendants from the rock pigeon (Columba livia).


This breed was developed by crossing the Ancient Tumbler, Kazaner Tumbler and other breeds in Berlin and surrounds in the mid 19th Century.[2]
