Subfamilies see article text Pigeons and doves constitute the family Columbidae within the order Columbiformes , which include some 300 species of near passerine birds . In general parlance the terms "dove" and "pigeon" are used somewhat interchangeably. In ornithological practice, there is a tendency for "dove" to be used for smaller species and "pigeon" for larger ones, but this is in no way consistently applied, and historically the common names for these birds involve a great deal of variation between the term "dove" and "pigeon." This family occurs worldwide, but the greatest variety is in the Indomalaya and Australasia ecozones . The young doves and pigeons are called "squabs." Pigeons and doves are stout-bodied birds with short necks and short slender bills with a fleshy cere . The species commonly referred to just as the "pigeon" is the feral Rock Pigeon , common in many cities.

Some very basic pigeon facts Pidge is a street pigeon that someone found as a baby on the side of the road. I hand-fed him until he was old enough to make it on his ownabout 4 weeks of taking a baby pigeon everywhere I went. Now he's the fastest and friendliest flier in my flock (hmmm, perhaps the most alliterative avian, also).

"Pigeons are dumb.
"They poop on people's heads."
"They smell."
That's what some people say about pigeons. In fact, that's what a lot of people say about these birds. But did you ever notice that pigeons come in so many colors and feather patterns? Did you ever notice their shiny, rainbow-like neck feathers or their red feet? Did you ever notice the interesting way that pigeons coo and strut? The fact is, pigeons are special. They are special because there is such variety in the way they look. Blue Jays all look very much alike, and so do robins and cardinals. But find a flock of pigeons and you will see white ones and gray ones. You will see pigeons with blue-gray feathers and pigeons with red feathers. You will see solid-colored pigeons and speckled pigeons. Look long enough and you will be able to tell them apart, give them names, and get to know their habits. Pigeons are special because they can fly very fast. In fact, some can fly 50 miles per hour! Pigeons also have very strong "homing instincts" that help them find their way back from far away. Pigeons make great pets, too. Many people build little houses called "coops" for pigeons in their backyards or on rooftops. They let their pet pigeons fly free because, unlike canaries or parrots, pigeons will come back home.

21 Amazing Facts You Didn't Know About Pigeons
How old are pigeons?
Pigeons have lived alongside man for thousands of years with the first images of pigeons being found by archaeologists in Mesopotamia (modern Iraq) and dating back to 3000 BC. It was the Sumerians in Mesopotamia that first started to breed white doves from the wild pigeon that we see in our towns and cities today and this undoubtedly accounts for the amazing variety of colors that are found in the average flock of urban pigeons. To ancient peoples a white pigeon would have seemed miraculous and this explains why the bird was widely worshipped and considered to be sacred. Throughout human history the pigeon has adopted many roles ranging from symbols of gods and goddesses through to sacrificial victims, messengers, pets, food and even war heroes!
Biblical references
The first biblical reference to the pigeon (or dove) was in the Old Testament of the Bible in the first millennium AC and was the story of Noah and the dove of peace. Later, in the New Testament, the pigeon was first mentioned during the baptism of Christ where the dove descended as the Holy Spirit, an image now used extensively in Christian art. These early biblical references have paved the way for the many different ways that the urban pigeon is viewed in modern societies worldwide. Perception of the pigeon through the centuries has changed from God to the devil and from hero to zero!

We find that this hobby has a great appeal to those who enjoy working with animals, to those who appreciate athleticism, to those who like friendly, wholesome competition. If you find yourself in one or more of these careful, you may discover that the allure of these amazingly athletic birds is overpowering. You can seek out your own comfort level with the birds. If you desire a lower-key approach, with only a handful of homing pigeons for the family to enjoy, that's certainly an attractive approach for many. The spectrum also includes those who are deeply committed to racing. Races range in distance from 100 miles to 600 miles, with 300 miles being among the most popular distances.

6. Pigeons
The pigeons or rock doves (Columba livia) found in North America are the feral offspring of pigeons brought to this continent by European immigrants.

William H. Kern, Jr. The pigeons or rock doves (Columba livia) found in North America are the feral offspring of pigeons brought to this continent by European immigrants. Pigeons are domesticated animals raised for sport racing, show and for food (squab). The ancestors of the pigeons we see in our cities and on our farms escaped from captivity and found a favorable environment living with humans. Feral pigeons now have a cosmopolitan distribution, having become established every place humans have built cities.
The feral pigeons found in Florida and North America are extremely variable in coloration. They exhibit the full range of coloration that domestication and selective breeding have produced. All pigeons that were developed from rock doves ( Figure 1 ) have a white rump, usually a white diamond-shaped patch just above the tail feathers. In white birds the white rump blends with the general body color. Many pigeons have retained the ancestral rock dove coloration: gray body, darker gray head and neck, white rump, dark band on the end of the tail, dark wing tips, and two black stripes running along the back edge of each wing. The total length is around 11-13 inches (28-33 cm).

      Dr. Lloyd Glenn Ingles, Cal. Academy of Sciences Pigeons are the quintessential urban bird, considered both an endearing part of city life and an aggravation. Either way, almost everyone recognizes this wild neighbor. In the Old World, these birds inhabited cliffs and rock ledges, nesting in such inaccessible places and foraging on the ground below. Imported to this continent to serve as food animals and as message carriers, some pigeons escaped captivity and found shelter in the artificial "mountain ranges" of cities. The pigeon's diet consists primarily of grains and seeds, along with insects and some greens. They aren't terribly picky though, and they'll happily accept human food scraps and leftovers when available. Pigeons live in groups called flocks, and show a strong affinity for human-built structures. A courting male pursues his intended mate on the ground, circling her with neck feathers inflated and tail spread, bowing and cooing all the while. Pigeons mate for life, but if one partner dies, the survivor generally will attempt to find another mate. Pigeons breed throughout the year, even during winter, and can raise four or five broods annually. Haphazard nests of twigs, leaves, and a few feathers are built on window ledges, behind signs, and under bridges.

Dark check family of racing pigeons bred for speed and endurance pigeon racing.
Racing Pigeons I didn't know there was such a thing when I was given my first pigeons. As a kid, my first pigeons were given to me by a man named Dale who was working at a bicycle shop. I don't know where he got them but I was more than happy to bottle feed the two week old baby pigeons. That's right, they were bottle fed. To be more precise, I used a pop bottle with plastic over the end and poked a hole in it for them to stick there beaks in to drink. The little pigeons would eat so much they couldn't move. They were spoiled little pigeons! Now, more than 40 years later, I still keep pigeons or should I say Racing Pigeons. I started my first young bird season in 1983 with a bang.
First Place 1430 Racing Pigeons
What makes our family of racing pigeons unique is that for years, like many racing pigeon fanciers, we had pigeons from across the United States, England, Belgium, and Holland. Then, in the early 90’s, I decided to breed only from the six best pair of racing pigeons. Some of the foundation racing pigeons that made an impact: 85 LOLF 588 BB was from Ed Hinterlong. I met Ed in 1983 while shipping my first pigeon race. The pigeon clock I took to the club was an antique and could not be used, so Ed loaned me a pigeon clock.

These nuisance birds were introduced to the United States as pets but quickly adapted to our environment and have continued to flourish in numbers, becoming a pest of business, airports, historical landmarks, schools, stadiums any place where adequate food and shelter is available. Pigeons primarily feed on grains with some occasional fruit in their diet. This basic diet has changed as the birds learned to live in our neighborhoods and cities. It is not uncommon to see flocks of pigeons walking through the parking lots of shopping centers and fast-food restaurants, looking for handouts or scraps of food dropped by humans. Pigeons are birds that live in communal flocks. These flocks generally feed, loaf and roost together, enjoying the company of their companions. These birds usually mate for life. Pigeons have a life span of up to 10 or 15 years in the wild but in urban areas they may only live for about 5 years. Most pigeon problems occur where the birds are loafing or feeding. It is in these areas that you generally need to use nuisance bird control products.

Preventing Problems with Pigeons
On the surface one might think that pigeons and humans live in perfect harmony. Cities provide pigeons with food, water, free housing on window ledges, rooftops, bridges, warehouses and train stations. Plus, predators are few and far between. Likewise, pigeons provide city dwellers with a hint of nature amidst their skyscrapers and blacktop parks.
Then What's the Problem?
The problem is pigeon droppings. Not only are they unsightly, but can damage buildings, monuments and automobiles, as well as harm people's health if allowed to accumulate.
Exclusion is the Best Remedy
Removing pigeons is a short-lived solution. It simply creates a vacancy for another animal, likely another pigeon, to fill. Make sure attic and soffit vents are properly screened to keep nesting pigeons and other birds and animals out of your house or building. To deter pigeons from roosting on railings and pipes install single strands of wire barrier 1 1/2 to 2 inches above the center of the surface so the birds will be off balance when they attempt to perch. You can also discourage them from roosting on flat surfaces like ledges by using boards or sheet metal to create a 45-degree or greater slope.

Facts about pigeon-related diseases
The New York City Department of Health and Mental Hygiene (DOHMH) has developed this fact sheet to address common questions and concerns regarding pigeon-related diseases. Pigeons are common to New York City. They often make nests in buildings and rapidly reproduce. Breeding occurs throughout the year, usually taking place between March and July. During these months, the DOHMH often receives questions about possible health risks associated with cleaning pigeon droppings. Contact with pigeon droppings may pose a small health risk. Three human diseases are known to be associated with pigeon droppings: histoplasmosis, cryptococcosis, and psittacosis. Histoplasmosis Histoplasmosis is a disease caused by a fungus, which grows in pigeon droppings. It also grows in soils and is found throughout the world. When cleaning droppings a person may breathe in some of the fungus, which in cases of high exposure can cause infection. Common activities, such as cleaning off windowsills, will not result in high exposures. Symptoms of histoplasmosis begin to appear about 10 days after initial infection and include fatigue, fever, and chest pains. Most people, however, do not show any symptoms. Those with compromised immune systems such as cancer patients or people living with HIV/AIDS are generally more at risk of developing histoplasmosis. The disease cannot be transmitted from person to person.
