Pigeons are easily identifiable to most Americans, and they carry the scientific name Columba livia. They are available in a wide range of colors including white, yellow, blue, green, red and purple. They almost always have two dark bands on their wings and one horizontal stripe on the tail. They have a distinct song compared to other birds that is known as a coo. The song they sing is used to attract a mate or another pigeon friend. When they walk or start to take flight, their heads bob back and forth. They will fly for a short distance, but they do not fly long distances like other scavenger birds.

While they are found throughout the day, they avoid looking for food at night. When the sun goes down, they will pack together in large flocks to nest. Foods they enjoy are seeds and nuts, but they will eat anything that is available including garbage. A nuisance in cities, they will inhabit anything that reminds them of a cliff. This includes barns, skyscrapers and other tower structures. Unlike other bird species, they will pair up for life and only mate with their partner. After the male builds the nest, both parents will incubate the eggs. The two to five eggs that are laid will hatch after two and a half weeks.

While they are fairly harmless, their feces are caustic to many humans and they can cause property damage. They can also be extremely harmful in areas where there are airplanes or fast moving transportation such as trains. Their nests may also be problematic if they are built in vents. Finally, they can attract predators that will use them or their eggs as a food source. Good examples of pigeon predators are owls, sparrow hawks, eagles, raccoons or possums.
