What are pigeons?

Originally, pigeons were introduced into the United States as a domesticated bird. However, some of those domesticated pigeons eventually escaped captivity and formed populations of wild pigeons. Today, wild pigeons live successfully throughout the United States in both rural and urban areas. An interesting fact about pigeons is that they are monogamous (have one mate at a time), so populations of pigeons typically have an equal number of males and females.

Why do I have a pigeon problem?

Though the pigeons that invade residential and commercial properties are wild, because these birds live near people, they have come to rely on us for some of their basic needs. Pigeons will live anywhere there is safe shelter located near food sources such as the roofs of homes and other buildings. While these birds prefer to feed on seeds, they have come to be a type of scavenger and will feed on almost anything they come across. Bird feeders, gardens, compost bins, trash cans, and outdoor eating areas are all common places where pigeons forage for food.

Where will I find pigeons?

Pigeons can be found living in a variety of locations in both rural and urban areas. In rural areas, pigeons nest in and around fields, barns, feed mills, food storage buildings, rock crevices, or in caves. In more urban areas, pigeons roost in church steeples, the rafters of large open warehouses, on the roofs of buildings, under bridges, and in parks.
