Pigeons have adapted well to urban environments. Most cities are full of flocks of these birds just looking for handouts. They often associate humans with food and are unafraid to flock near people. They are also don’t mind where they leave droppings – just look at your car! Their nesting material can clog vents and drain pipes, and cause potential fire hazards. The droppings and feathers can contaminate large quantities of livestock feed and food destined for human consumption.
If that’s not enough, pigeons lack the common decency to rid themselves of parasite and disease before they enter our urban areas. These “flying rats” or “gutter birds” can carry or transmit: pigeon ornithosis, encephalitis, Newcastle disease, histoplasmosis, cryptococcosis, toxoplasmosis, pseudo-tuberculosis, pigeoncoccidiosis and salmonella food poisoning; just to name a few. Point is – a pigeon is one dirty bird.
