Stop feeding them
While you may not be actively feeding pigeons in your garden, bird feeders and breadcrumbs scattered on your lawn will be doing it for you.
If you want to continue feeding wildlife in your garden, there are a few things you can do to make feeders inaccessible to unwanted pigeons.
The Royal Society for the Protection of Birds (RSPB) said: “Avoid certain food and mixes that contain whole grains such as corn, wheat and barley that are likely to be eaten by large birds like pigeons.”
Switching to a smaller feeder is also worth doing in order to stop sizable pests from getting to the mix.
