box and grain works if they are not too wily and streetwise,,otherwise time and patience and a net,,they can become spooked if you try and catch them too suddenly,patience is name of the game

After dark would be the easiest. You must be very careful with the net so you don't injure the Pigeon.

Carefully. I use a large fishing net with a large opening and a deep net and long handle. Be very careful if you are catching them from a ladder. Let them calm down before you try catching another one. (I assume you are going to try this at night, otherwise they will fly off and you will play heck trying to get near them again.)
