how many years do pigeons live for?
<<Pigeons in the wild usually live to 3 or 4 years age. They are capable of living up to 15 years, however, factors such as disease, lack food and water, and predation from other birds and mammals prevents this.>> Googling for answers is a bad way to get information. I have a friend (a farmer) who raises pigeons. His oldest was hatched in 1978, making it 36 years old. I've known a number of pigeons…
Pigeons live in pretty much any part of the world that is not extremely cold. Mostly down the shore and at the Beach. There are many species of doves and pigeons, found nearly worldwide in distribution. Originally they live on rocky cliffs. Buildings remind them about of their original homes. The pigeon lives in tropical countries like the Philippines.
Pigeons are often preyed on by raptors of many species. Falcons, and accipiters like the goshawk and Cooper's hawk take pigeons, and a pair of red tailed hawks that nested for several years in New York City, took pigeons and rats to feed the young. Pigeons are normally not on the red tail's diet, but the large flocks proved easy pickings for the hawks.
