Size

The pigeon measures about 28 cm.

Colour

The pigeon is a bird that changes colour with age: grey, beige, white or black.

Description

This bird is a very common species in the Quebec / Montreal region. It multiplies rapidly since females lay new eggs even before her young have left their nest.

Diet

Pigeons feed primarily on invertebrates, seeds and fruit and can also eat bread,because they live near humans. Their presence is easily detected because they are very noisy and produce a large amount of droppings around their habitat.

Habitat

This bird species is often found in urban areas, shelters and nests in places humans find hard to reach in order to protect themselves, such as gutters, roofs, attics andwindow sills..

Consequences / Dangers
