Common Nesting Areas and Problems
Pigeons will gather and take up residency wherever they can find a flat surface and food. Building ledges, AC units, vents, rooftops and gutters are common locations on homes and apartment buildings that attract these nuisance birds. A few twigs is all they need to create a home. They can breed at any time of the year up to six times per year and the eggs hatch in about 18 days. This means that a few can become a full infestation in no time at all. They survive on whatever food they can scavenge. In populated areas people tend to provide what they need in trash and bird seed but they will also eat grass, natural seeds and berries. They are commonly found in outdoor eating areas where humans will create crumbs and dropped food.
