Feeding Birds without Feeding Pigeons

I love to feed the birds, but now I am getting pigeons feeding too. I there a way to stop them from coming but keep the other birds?
Thanks for the help



Feeding Birds without Feeding Pigeons

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.

I wouldn't mind a few pigeons but 50 or more swoop in and clean out all the seed in minutes while the smaller birds sit in the bushes and watch. When the food is gone the pigeons will sit on a nearby electric line and wait for me to come back out to feed the smaller birds then it starts all over again. It's very frustrating. I'm spending a lot of money feeding these gluttons and the others get nothing. Will nothing help?

Exactly the same happens in my patio too. For months there were only small birds. 2 pigeons came a single day and the next day they multiplied by 10.


Now 20+ pigeons comes in and sweeps the food completely. Poor small birds were given no choice. If I re feed, again pigeons are back. Please anyone any idea to stop pigeons?
