Feral pigeons are the number one pest bird in urban areas. Descendants of European homing pigeons, feral pigeons are not afraid of people and will live in close proximity.
Pigeons can be a real nuisance to businesses. They are attracted to food sources, including garbage, which is why they are often found near bars and restaurants and landfill sites. Pigeons also like to shelter in seemingly inhospitable areas of tall buildings. They will make use of balconies, ledges, flat roofs, gutters and loft spaces, as they are capable of lifting damaged or loose roof coverings to force entry.
