Everything You Wanted To Know About Pigeons

Wherever there are people, there are pigeons. They are descended from rock doves, which were originally domesticated for food and pets. Released birds are the forebears of today’s pigeon infestations, which plague cities across the globe. And because they have no natural enemies, pigeons have become the number one avian pest by far. The following are some more pigeon facts for Vancouver homeowners:
