I’ve proposed a dovecote/ a village of dovecotes for the city’s feral pigeons. A dovecote can be for anywhere between 10 and 200 pigeons! A village of 5 or so dovecotes each with the capacity for 20 birds would be good. They were originally used to house pigeons which were a good source of food, eggs & their dung was used on gardens & for house insulation. Copenhagen City Hall still has pigeons in the roof and once a year there is a big pigeon feast with the King! Location wise, anywhere where there is a small colony of pigeons would be good, I don’t think it will take too much persuading to get them in if we provide them with some food, perches & a dry place.
