I was reading one of Taralotti's posts where she mentions singing mantras to her pigeons, and of course it makes sense that they will react to some sounds more favourably than others. So the question is: which ones?

Out of everything they've heard so far, Top of the Pops for Piper and Noel was Chi Mi Na Morbheanna by The Rankin Family.

What do your pigeons like?

This has got to be a put-on but I will go along because it sounds like fun!

Figuritas prefer Flamenco.

Classic old frills are into Bach.

Texan Pioneers stomp around with country and western.

Racing homers like fast music.

Priests prefer choral pieces recorded in an abbey.

Rock pigeons (ferals) like...you guessed it....

Anyone want to add to the list?

I haven't personally played music to my rescues but I have to say, when I took two Woodies to Taralotti's, (Maria's), recently, she had music playing in her aviary for March her existing Woodie, and it was delightful.
I really must find out what it actually was.
Although it was musical it also had birds singing and general wildlife sounds and to sit in that aviary listening was so relaxing. I'm sure the injured birds especially would benefit from the calm atmosphere, I know I certainly did !!

Oh yeah...it's definitely for real.


Pigeon wise, individual Birds will have their own preferences, and one has to try different Music to see who likes what.


Too, it is not always easy to tell if they like something or not.


Far as I have been able to tell, no Bird of any Spedies can stand any music of 'Barry Manilow', or 'Kenny G'.



While, virtually all Birds do like most Popular Music, Jazz, Cowboy, and Hawiaan Music as found on 78 RPM Records of the 'teens and 'twenties and some early 'thirties.


Though they do NOT like 'Big Band'.


One of my Pigeons, a Hen, really loved a song called 'Beck's Bolero' by Jeff Beck.


She'd literally fly up and stand right in front of the Speaker and just groove with the song...and I played it "LOUD", too...which is how that song should be played.


http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Xbx-Qgt65bI


Once the Song was over, she'd stand there all dreamy, then compose herself and fly off.





So there's a lot of variation in what individual Birds like, and some general trends, also, for Birds in general.


Uhhhhhh...a few more which come to mind, whih the Birds here like -


'Musica Poetica' - Carl Orff

http://www.last.fm/music/Carl+Orff/_/Musica+Poetica



Probably, one could arrange some learly distinguished 'pecking-buttons' allowing them to elect speific Songs to be played, and see which ones they play most..!


"The Pigeon Juke Box" as it were...



That would be fun...

My back yard guys get to listen/watch American Idol. They must like it. The ferals won't leave and are waiting around until next season.
They also get to listen to some talk radio so that may explain why they get such an attitude.

The only music that my pigeons love is the music of my whistling during feed time. My neighbor who play rock band and heavy metal are not the music that my homers love. They find them music scary.

I play Sinatra for my birds sometimes. And I like to sing to them. Mostly made up songs like "Don't Poop on my Head Please" or "The Eat A Peanut Song".

Eat a peanut
Eat a peanut
Eat a PEAnut cause they're good!
There! You ate one
And another
I see you liked them
I knew you would!

I can't sing worth a darn but the birds don't seem to mind. :)

Absolutely hilarious, and according to that ferals would like folk/ethnic music! But I was actually being serious, because I had been listening to music and noticed that my (indoor) pigeons looked very interested when I played that particular song. They came up closer, tilted their heads and started making little noises, so it seemed they were showing a preference.

I'm surprised they don't like Barry Manilow, as he's got a respectable beak for a nose... :)

And this is also unexpected, as, even at his most poetic, Carl Orff is a bit LOUD! I would have thought they'd shrink back from it, as they do with big band music.

My pigeon loves Primus. He listens to their Pork Soda album over and over again. it intrigues him no matter how many times he listens to it. He also likes one aphex twin song. Im still trying to find more music that he likes.
