If it is where the body meets the tail feathers, it would seem to be where the preen gland is located. If so, maybe enlarged or clogged, maybe another problem with it. That's only a suggestion though.

There is a thread here about an enlarged preen gland which may or may not give you any indication. Personally, I'd be inclined get her checked by a reasonably bird-knowledgeable vet

Sounds like that's the best bet, provided the vet is familiar with pigeons - and doesn't simply suggest having her PTS!

They can get various lumps, and tumors, of course, poor little things.
