Pigeons are found in nearly all environments where people are found. Most people are familiar with seeing pigeons around farm yards, parks, city buildings, bridges and other structures.
This is because they are highly dependent on people to provide them with food and roosting sites. Pigeons are primarily seed eaters, however, they will also feed on nearly anything provided for them by people. Typically, a pigeon will have a gray body (although body colour may range from white to tan to black) with a white rump, a wide black band on the tail and red feet. The average weight is approximately 369 g, and they will reach a length of 28 cm.
Their distinctive “clicking” sound which is made during flight, occurs as a result of their wing tips touching while they are beating.
