Doesn't look like a homer to me. He will get used to you in time. Spend time near him and talk quietly to him. Get him used to special treats like chopped unsalted peanuts or safflower seed, but given in small quantities, as they are high in fat. Pigeons usually love them and will eventually fly to you for the treat. Be patient, and give him time to trust you. Not everyone uses pigeon pants. Eventually you will learn where he likes to perch, and you can put towels under those places. If he like to land on the backs of chairs, just cover them with a towel. The bird is much better and safer confined in a cage when you are not there to supervise. They can easily get into things and be injured if you are not there. It is better for them to have an area that they will view as their territory, rather than the whole house. And later on, when you realize that you do want to cage him, it will be lots harder if he is used to seeing the whole house as his territory. And pigeon pants should not be left on the bird for hours at a time. Not good and not normal.
