South African driven pigeon shooting

South African Rock Pigeons are adaptable birds that can be found in a wide range of environments, including rocky cliffs, mountains, coastal areas, and urban areas. They are well-known for their ability to thrive in both natural and man-made environments.

These pigeons are medium-sized birds, measuring 32-36 centimetres (12-14 inches) in length. Rock pigeons are strongly speckled with white spots. The rest of the body’s upper and lower regions are blue-grey, and the head itself is grey with red patches surrounding the eyes. The neck is brownish, with white streaks, and its legs are red. Males and females are alike, but juveniles are more browned than adults pigeons and don’t have the red eye the patches.

South African Rock Pigeons are known for their acrobatic powerful quick flying. They can frequently be seen flying through the sky or perched on rocky cliffs and rooftops. They are social birds that congregate in large groups, especially when foraging for food.

Their diet consists primarily of seeds and grains. They have been observed feeding on a variety of plants, including sunflowers, maize, and sorghum, making them adaptable foragers.

These pigeons build their nests on ledges or crevices in cliffs, as well as rooftops, gutters, and window ledges. They lay one or two eggs at a time, and both parents incubate the eggs and care for the chicks. They breed three to four times per year.

South African Rock Pigeons are regarded as a pest species of low conservation concern because their populations are healthy and widespread throughout South Africa. Currently, the number of rock pigeons in South Africa is increasing, though this varies from year to year.
