Feral pigeons (Columbia livia) are the descendants of the domesticated form of the wild rock dove. These birds originally inhabited many coastal cliffs and rocky areas in the British Isles, the Mediterranean region and North Africa, and India. They were introduced into North, Central and South America, the West Indies, the Bahamas, Bermuda, Somoa, Fiji, the Hawaiian Islands, Australia, New Zealand, and Mauritius. Feral populations are now found in these and other countries. This note describes the control options available and highlights the damage caused by pigeons.
