Pigeon Biology
The more you understand about the pigeon, the better. The reason they’re so well-suited to city environments is because the tall buildings are similar to the cliff homes of their ancestors in Egypt.

Important biological facts to keep in mind regarding pigeon control include:

  • Diet: A typical pigeon diet consists of seeds and grains. However, they’re also attracted to processed foods. They’ll take advantage of food or water that is made available to them.
  • Habits: Pigeons are social birds, often seeking the company of other pigeons in search of a mate. They are monogamous birds, remaining with one mate for life.
  • Nesting: Nesting sites are usually within dark enclosures that help shield them from the environment. The female will usually lay 1-2 eggs at a time.
  • Life-span: Pigeons live between 15 and 30 years. In urban environments, they will often live between 3-4 years.
