Summary:

The Feral pigeon is a wide spread, common urban pest bird.

They have short legs with level front and hind toes, which enable them to walk on flat surfaces as well as perch on branches.

Habitat:
  • Mostly found in urban or suburban areas;
  • Especially center of larger cities and railway yards (rarely farmland);
  • Prefer small flat areas away from the ground like protected ledges and rooftops;
  • Popular nesting places include building ledges, bridge supports, air conditioning units and above windows.
Breeding:
  • Mating pair has 3-4 broods per year;
  • Female lays 2-3 eggs at a time;
  • Eggs take 18 days to hatch;
  • Fledglings leave nest after 35 days;
  • Although they mostly build simple nests from a few stiff twigs, some will lay eggs directly on a protected ledge;
  • They like to make nests in and on man-made structures.
Damage:
  • "Uric acids in feces are highly corrosive;
  • Feces cause damage to waterproofing of roofs causing leaks; feces damage paintwork of automobiles with regular/long contact;
  • Feces also damage air conditioning units and solar panels;
  • Built up feces can lead to structural damage and blocked gutters;
  • Degrading the aesthetics of potentially neat and beautiful buildings;
  • Pigeons may cause a health risk when HACCP standards are not met by food processing companies as a result of birds entering factories and warehouses: bird droppings damage and infest raw materials, products in process and finished goods;
  • Nests near electrical points/lines or in chimneys are a great fire hazard;
  • Bacteria, fungal agents and ectoparasites in droppings may be a health risk."
