History  



- Special Species- Pigeons have been around since 3000 B.C. In the 16th 17th and 


18th century in Europe. 


- Captive pigeon dung was used as fertilizer. 


- Pigeons have been know to return to their nests from distances of up to 400-600 miles 


because they have a special homing ability. 


- Despite their reputation as dumb birds, Pigeons are considered to be very smart. The 


pigeon has been found to pass the “mirror test” recognizing reflection. 


- The reason why pigeons bob their heads when they walk is for depth perception. They 


have monocular sight so this allows them to see better.



The City Pigeon



- Feral Pigeons (Columba livia), also called rock


doves, city pigeons, or street pigeons, are derived 


from domestic pigeons that have returned from the wild. 


The domestic pigeon was originally bred from the wild Rock 


Pigeon, which naturally inhabits sea-cliffs and mountains. 



- Feral pigeons (Naturally cliff dwelling birds) find the ledges of buildings to a 


substitute for sea cliffs, and have become adapted to urban 


life and are abundant in towns and cities throughout much 


of the world.
