Feral pigeons are a recognised pest bird problem in built-up areas like cities, such as London, where food debris is in plentiful supply. They are renowned for overnight roosting and daytime perching. Pigeons have adapted well to the urban environment, feeding in territorial flocks of 50-400 individuals and their dependence on man for food has led them to become a serious pest.
