Yes, they do. We were in a beach one time and my brother was lying down when suddenly a passing group of pigeons blasted us with their poops. There goes our personal proofs!

Well, it is the exception for them to take a Dump while Flying. unless the Bird is ill, or it is a hen , or Cock just coming off the Nest.
I can count on one hand the number of times i have seen one of my flying birds do it, and that is most likely an over estimate. Dave

ok well that dont help me well it does and it dont because i said ha i'm right but like normal she said she's right (but she's a girl what can i say) :p
Are you trying to score some points with your girl? Most birds will and can poop while in flight but how often it happen/ occurs is unknown. I know a few of mine does cause they target my freshly washed car....

lol - what a question!

Any pigeon that has eaten before flying will poop in the air.

Rollers are supposed to be flown on an empty stomach, so they should not poop while flying unless the owner does not manage them properly. If they are not flown hungry, they do not have the motivation to come home when they're supposed to.

Same thing for short distance Homers. They should not poop while flying because they should not have eaten within 4-6 hours of being released.
Not sure about long distance Homers though.

Me thinks ye needs to watch your Birds more, when i get a chance there is a thread here that is more accurate, all saying NO they do not. And,God as my witness ALL i do, is watch my Birds Fly. And i do not agree with the opinions on this Thread! It is not typical that they do. LOL! Dave:D:D:D:D

Oh, most Birds do not Normally poop in the air, (there are some Species that do.) Dave
Well, I know one species that DOES........and that's Turkey Vultures, because one was flying/soaring right above our house one day and he let out a stream of poop like nobodies business. That crap splatted EVERYWHERE.....including on ME!!:eek:

yes, my "just trying to be a good citizen" neighbor found a poop on his barn roof after two days snow storm - and of course, its was my poop of one of my pigeons, even they have been locked down for winter season.
