One of our neighbours regularly feeds pigeons in her yard. The result is that large flocks of them congregate around her house, which has caused other people around to complain. Pigeons can cause problems in urban environments and in this old post of mine you can read how Melbourne City Council curtails the population. 

How do you view pigeons in the urban setting? Love them? Hate them? Are you indifferent to them? Why?

This post is part of the Saturday Critters meme.


  1. Hello,

    Love the colorful pigeons, beautiful shot. Thank you for again for linking up! Happy weekend to you!

  2. Hello. I like pigeons. In my opinion, it would be better if people would not feed pigeons.

  3. Nice photo! When I lived in the city I hated pigeons because they woke me up every morning, hanging out and cooing on my apartment balcony, plus their poop...but now that I live rurally, I don't mind then when I see them! :)

  4. While pigeons adapt to cities, city people don't adapt much to pigeons, mainly in that when they congregate, the aftermath is a ton of poop :) Hard to live with that. I live in the suburbs, and thankfully no pigeons in my yard. We have mourning doves that congregate on a much smaller scale and are a joy to be around. Beautiful photo of the pigeons. They always have such amazing colors.
