THE DOMESTIC PIGEON or Columba Livia
Pigeons are know to make the venture from there closet habitat in Vancouver to Squamish quite regularly and have even been seen in Whistler. Originally found in Europe circa middle ages, these winged old feather factories they like to get their height on in Toronto or New York style windowsills roofs, eves, steeples and other man made structures.
They mainly eat seeds and grains, even insects when provided intentionally, and believe it or not domestic cats are the main urban predators, but opossums, raccoons, foxes, weasels, and rats also eat pigeons (when they can access the nest).
A mother pigeon lives about 15years although this is debatable, and it is too long for most, urban areas can be 100% percent less (3 year average). She also will produce 4 to 5 broads a year, and if conditions exist the old eggs will have even left the nest before previous have even hatched. Yikes!
