Pigeons: What you need to know

Identifying Characteristics

  • Pigeons measure around 11 – 14 inches with a wingspan of 20 – 26 inches and weighing around 9 – 13 ounces
  • They have a dark blue-gray head, neck and chest with glossy green and red-purple iridescence around the neck and wing feathers, and white lower back feathers
  • They have 2 distinctive black wing stripes
  • The feral pigeon is found almost exclusively in areas of human habitation

Active Season

  • Pigeon mating may occur during all seasons, but peak reproduction occurs in the Spring and Fall

Interesting Facts

  • Because pigeons have monocular vision rather than binocular vision they bob their heads for depth of perception
  • The pigeon can see color in the same way that humans do but they can also see ultraviolet, a part of the spectrum that humans cannot see

Cause for Concern

  • Pigeons are widely considered to be the #1 bird nuisance across the United States
  • Their droppings deface and accelerate the deterioration of buildings and increase the cost of maintenance
  • They can carry and spread diseases to people and livestock through their droppings
