  1. Wild or 'Feral' Pigeons
    So, I posted about a couple of pigeons that laid their eggs on my 6th floor balcony... I have since named them Desmond and Molly and refer to them as "my" pigeons. They (not so) cleverly nested in a place with zero cover from other birds and I've been trying to put up a non-invasive screen to...

    I have a large freestanding dovecote and about ten normal white doves. In previous years they have bred prolifically. But this year the crows have arrived and eat the eggs or babies so none born at all. I have placed steel spikes at the entrance to all the holes but to no avail. The crows learn...
  3. Homing & Racing Pigeons
    I have been feeding some of the neighborhood crows hoping to keep them around the area as a deterrent to the local hawk population. It appears that one pair of crows is making a nest in the large pine tree above my loft. Well, three times yesterday the crows earned their keep. First, I was...

Other articles say that crows attack pigeons and do them harm. Since hawks have become such a problem for flying rollers, I...

    The other day, we were walking our dogs at a nearby park. A family of crows hangs out in the trees near the picnic area and when they sounded the alarm we looked to see what predator was in the area. A sharp-shinned hawk came into view, following one of the crows at a leisurely pace. Then a...
