Default Pigeons

So therefore the fact that we, and lots of other gardeners feed the birds in
general make the Pigeons nest build and breed. Why not the other birds?

Why are the Pigeons gathering nesting materials?


I understand that pigeon nest all year round. No doubt someone will be
along to put me right and say that is an urban myth.

Pigeons in this country will breed whenever there is the opportunity
of food being available to rear their broods. i believe that there
have been breeding records from virtually all of the months of the
year, for feral pigeons at least.
