They have short legs with level front and hind toes, which enable them to walk on flat surfaces as well as perch on branches.

Habitat:
  • Mostly found in urban or suburban areas;
  • Especially centre of larger cities and railway yards (rarely farmland);
  • Prefer small flat areas away from the ground like protected ledges and rooftops;
  • Popular nesting places includes: building ledges, bridge supports, air conditioning units and above windows.

  • Mating pair has 3-4 broods per year;
  • Female lays 2-3 eggs at a time;
  • Eggs take 18 days to hatch;
  • Fledglings leave nest after 35 days;
  • Although they mostly build simple nests from a few stiff twigs, some will lay eggs directly on a protected ledge;
  • They like to make nests in and on man made structures.
Damage:
  • "Uric acids in feces are highly corrosive;
  • Feces cause damage to waterproofing of roofs causing leaks; feces damage paint work of automobiles with regular/long contact;
  • Feces also damages air conditioning units and solar panels;
  • Built up feces can lead to structural damage and blocked gutters;
  • Degrading the aesthetics of potentially neat and beautiful buildings;
  • Pigeons may cause a health risk when HACP standards are not met by food processing companies as a result of birds entering factories and warehouses: bird droppings damage and infest raw materials, products in process and finished goods;
