in the wild do pigeons have a breeding season? if the climate/ food/permits/conditions permit will "local" birds nest year round? thanks

Well i know i will not be agreed with by a lot of folks here. BUT, the hours that the sun is up
dictates when feral pigeons, and JUST about any species of bird breed.
I am sure there are exceptions, (city lights, Ect.) THAT is the only stimulus they go by. Dave

I am no expert I just know I have had two sets of eggs (not counting eggs layed by a lone female, but those were also in spring/summer) and they were both in spring/early summer.

They do here in Southern California because of the very mild climate. Even with that, the nesting does slow down in the "winter" months.
