Pigeons are one of the most commonly seen birds in cities worldwide. They are often considered to be a nuisance, but they play an important role in the ecosystem. Pigeons are seed dispersers and help to pollinate plants. They are also known to help control insect populations.
Pigeons have been domesticated for centuries and used as messenger birds during wartime. Today, many different breeds of pigeons are kept as pets. These birds are intelligent and can be trained to do tricks.
Whether you love them or hate them, pigeons are here to stay. At Pigeons Matter, we aim to educate the public about these misunderstood birds. We also provide resources for those who want to learn more about pigeons and how to care for them.
