New pigeon houses in Paris

New pigeon houses in Paris

2 new dovecot or houses of pigeons have been installed in Paris for regulation of the population and the health of pigeons. 

 

These dovecots have been installed at the Square Saint-Eloi in the 12th district and at the Porte de Saint-Cloud in the 16th district. Installation of dovecot helps regulate the population of rock pigeons (accounting for about 90% of pigeon population of Paris) in a stable manner. 

 

Normally pigeons have a brood of 6-8 per year. Using controlled methods adopted at dovecot, this brood is reduced to one per year. It may be noted that an over population of certain species of birds or rodents may be a nuisance to public health, sanitation and property.
