Pigeons, aka Rock Doves, (Columba livia) are a tremendous scourge to many urban areas in the U.S. These birds, which were introduced to the U.S., cause damage to buildings through their droppings and urine. While there is no magic cure for controlling pigeons, the steps are remarkably straightforward. Sometimes the appropriate techniques are expensive, sometime they are not. Yet Wildlife Damage Control is committed to tell you what works and what doesn't.Pigeon Damage Control

The photo at your right is one of a feral pigeon also known as a common pigeon. Note that the nest is extremely crude consisting of only a few sticks. Sometimes the nest will be made out of pigeon droppings. Always wear appropriate safety equipment before cleaning any pigeon droppings. For more information on pigeon droppings click bird droppings.
