Description. Pigeons inhabit lofts, steeples, attics, caves, and
ornate architectural features of buildings where openings
allow for roosting, loafing, and nest building. Nests consist
of sticks, twigs, and grasses clumped together to form a
Reproduction. Pigeons are monogamous; that is, they have one
mate at a time. The male cares for and guards the female
and the nest. Eight to 12 days after mating, the female lays
one or two eggs. Approximately 18 days later the eggs
hatch. The squabs are fed a secreted substance called
"pigeon milk." The young leave the nest at four to six weeks
of age. More eggs are usually laid before the first young are
weaned. Breeding may occur during all seasons, but peak
reproduction is in the spring and fall. A pigeon population
usually consists equally of males and females. Pigeons
can live for 15 years and sometimes longer. However, in
urban pigeon populations, it is estimated that few live for
more than 3 or 4 years.
