Pigeon

Pigeons are the most common bird in North America. They build a nest on ledges of cliffs, in barns and lofts, under bridges and wharves, in culverts and holes in buildings. Pigeons feed on agricultural crops such as corn. They eat from people's hands if they become accustomed to them. Pigeons will also eat mice, insects, and scraps. Pigeons are typically plump with short necks and small heads on long tapering necks. Their toes are long, slender, and set far back on their feet for walking. The tail is fan-shaped when spread in flight. Pigeons have four distinct calls. They are coo-cooo, millel, prruk-prruk, and tchee-ah tchee-ah. The common pigeon is gray with two black bars on the wings forming a dark "X." Their eyes are red. The male has a pinkish chest patch; the female is duller and lacks the chest patch. Pigeons will nest in large groups if there are enough sites to accommodate them all. Pigeons can also create several nests, one on top of another. Young pigeons leave the nest when they are only eleven to fourteen days old. Their parents feed them for another three weeks. Pigeons were brought to North America by European settlers in order to establish a constant food supply. Pigeons are now considered an invasive species because of their ability to adapt and reproduce rapidly. They will eat almost anything and their numbers can quickly get out of hand. Pigeons, especially homing pigeons, have been used for carrying messages throughout history. The first pigeon mail service started in 1820 between New York and Boston. Pigeons have also been used as racing birds by people since ancient times. Common pigeons usually live 4-6 years, but some have been reported to live as long as 30 years. Common pigeons are found throughout the world in cities, towns, and agricultural areas where they forage on cultivated crops or garbage. They build a flimsy stick nest usually under an overhang on a building or cliff ledge. The female lays two white eggs, which both parents incubate for about 18 days. Pigeons are gentle, plump, small-billed birds with a skin saddle (cere) between the bill and forehead. All pigeons strut about with a characteristic bobbing of the head. Because of their long wings and powerful flight muscles, they are strong, swift fliers.
