Pigeons are extremely communal creatures. They appear to be greedy when they are clabbering each other to get at the food. The reason why they do this, is they then share after they grab the food.
Especially the males, like to share with the females while they are getting intimate. They swallow the item whole then, they have a grinder in their gullet which grinds the seeds and nuts into a sweet milk. Kind of like a Nutribullet. They then feed the milk like substance to each other and to the baby squabs.
It’s really sweet to see Pigeons feeding each other and the young. It reminds you that even though pigeons sometimes appear to be aggressive, they are doing this to care for each other. It’s important for the males to always have extra food to feed the females, so that’s why they appear to be more aggressive than the female pigeons.
The one time the female pigeons are super aggressive is, if they are a mom. It’s super sweet to see the mom get food for the baby squab. She will put her wings out and say this is for my baby to all the other birds around. She will knock them out of the way. They know not to get in the way of the feeding momma bird.
Tweet your local commissioner, If you love pigeons and do not like Clark County’s law of making it illegal to feed pigeons. They are beautiful creatures. We have witnessed the most precious experience watching this baby squab grow. We have been able to observe the pigeons at such a different level, watching the family hang out. It’s so amazing to see. The baby has grown so much in over a week.
