How to prevent Pigeons coming to my garden?
Strathclyde, United Kingdom
We get a wide variety of lovely small birds at our home (including woodpeckers, siskins, bullfinches) and put out a lot of food to encourage them.
We originally didn't get any feral pigeons, (just a pair of lovely wood pigeons), but unfortunately, we're now get loads of feral pigeons - well over a dozen at any time!
With just the smaller birds, we rarely had any bird dirt to clear up, but now the pigeons are leaving a lot of mess.
We've tried the suggestion to put out an artificial owl, but the pigeons are wise to this, and still come down to find food.
What else can we try to dissuade pigeons from coming to our garden?
