Abstract

The countryside is visited daily by feral pigeons that find in agricultural habitat an important and well exploited source of food. These feeding flights are a significant source of damage to agriculture and for this reason a plan for pigeons culling has been drawn by the Pisa Province for crop protection. In order to better assess interactions between pigeons and agriculture, three major topics have been investigated, namely: census of urban population of pigeons, study of their home range and of their habitat preferences in the countryside.
