Sue, are you sure they're pigeons? My husband thought we had pigeons, too, but when he asked me about them, I told him they were doves. Not all doves are white, as some people believe. If they make a "coo"ing sound, they're doves. They're much larger than the chickadees, finches and other birds we have in our area. In our area, we have ravens that stand about 1 1/2 ft. high (largest ones I've ever seen!) I don't like them in my yard either, but it's like they've all got to eat & they know I feed the other birds. I've shooed the ravens off on occasion, they don't come around much anymore. (06/25/2004)
I have the doves too but I don't mind them because I love the cooing.
Poor pigeons! They get no respect. :( (09/11/2004)
