Can Band Tailed Pigeon cross with Feral Rock Pigeons? Any information on Pigeon/Dove hybridization of all breeds is helpful.

NZ Pigeon, these are Band-tailed Pigeons (Patagioenas fasciata), which are a protected specie in the US. They are found on the west coast mostly.




You technically aren't supposed to keep these without a federal rehab license (which is needed to rescue/rehab any native/protected birds). They probably will produce sterile hybrids.

Thanks Becky, They are amazing, look a little like our native wood pigeon (kereru) in size. Where I jog up the hills at this time of year the Kereru are very active, I love watching them manouver through the trees.

Yes...it is illegal for you to have a Band-tailed pigeon.
