  1. I found a pigeon or dove - now what?
    Hi, all. I apologize, but I made a big mistake and now donā€™t know what to do. I havenā€™t used my balcony in some time (22nd floor of high rise). But with Covid, I Am sheltering at home, and decided to use all my space. I discovered a dirty nest behind a chair in the corner, and pigeon droppings...
  2. Pet Pigeons And Doves
    So, two of my pigeons seem uninterested in sitting on their eggs (they did that last time, too, but they're young and this is their second clutch). One of my other pigeons decided that nest was a perfect place to lay her own egg despite there being a seperate nest just for her and her mate (no...

We are in NYC on the 15th floor of a high rise apartment building and have been noticing for sometime now that pigeons have been ā€œhanging outā€ on the rails of the terrace. We just came...

    Hi, There are a pair of pigeon babies nesting on my AC ledge. They hatched July 17th and have been flying between the different condo blocks with their Mother for about a week now. They were gone for a day and I thought they have fledged the nest so I went out and cleaned it up. To my...
  8. Wild or 'Feral' Pigeons
    Hi, everyone. TL;DR Two Rock Pigeons are growing a healthy squab on my window sill. I like the birds but the nest smells really bad and is dirty, as one would expect. The way the nest is set up, it is very possible for mites and all kind of unsanitary bacteria from the droppings or whatnot to...

  10. Products and Equipment
    I'm having trouble getting the nest pads I bought with my nest bowls to stay in the bowls properly. They slide around in the bowls, so the birds don't have secure footing as they enter and exit the nest bowl. Sometimes they even slide so far to the side that the pad comes out completely. Has...

    Time-sensitive - How to protect a pigeon nest from predators? Hello all, I'll try to make this long story short. I live in the city. I found a feral pigeon nest on my balcony when I moved into my new place a few weeks ago. Soon there were two eggs, and I watched with glee as the parents took...
  13. Wild or 'Feral' Pigeons
    About a week ago a pigeon laid eggs on my balcony. Some people will come to do fix the air conditioner in my house next week. The problem is that to fix it they will need to go to the balcony and the pigeons laid eggs on a pot which is on the side that the people will be working on. The side...
  14. Wild or 'Feral' Pigeons
    Hi there. I just joined this group and I'm not sure if I'm posting under the right category. I have a nest of what looks like to be 2 dead baby pigeons on my balcony. I'm not sure what happened, possibly the cold weather or the mother leaving them alone too long. The mother still comes back to...
  15. Pet Pigeons And Doves
    Hello, I am the proud happy owner of four doves, all rescues. I adopted two bonded males two years ago, and two other females separately a year ago...so one of my females laid an egg in a nest, which one of the males fertilized because I see the egg is veining. However, now the two bonded...
  16. Wild or 'Feral' Pigeons
    Hey everyone! So this is my first post here. I have been watching a nest of two baby pigeons grow right outside of my window sill for while now. They are at the age now where they are stretching their wings! I have noticed that one (I assume he's a male) is about the size of an adult at this...

    Hi all! I used to come here a lot - I have a pet rescue ex-racing pigeon. Unfortunately I got relocated abroad for work and couldn't take my bird with me and I've been missing him TERRIBLY ever since (he now lives with my father back home). Then, as if by pigeon-y miracle, a pair of ferals...

    We have feral pigeons nesting outside and their nest seems to just increase in amount of poop - and I'm sure they have at least 3 weeks left before babies leave the nest. Is it okay to leave the chicks in a poop filled nest or can I make a custom nest? If so, what are some easy to get material...

    Hi all, A pigeon nested on our 3rd floor balcony. I'm not sure how old the babies are now so I've included a picture, perhaps someone here will be able to gauge their age based on that. My boyfriend thinks three weeks, but I thought it was much less than that. The balcony is very secure and...
  20. I found a pigeon or dove - now what?
    Hello, About a week ago I noticed a pigeon nest on a traffic light not too far from my house in Montreal (Quebec, Canada). Aside from the odd choice of location, they seemed to be doing well, and I could see one parent coming and going. I'm not sure if it was always the same parent or if they...
