This big pigeon, larger than the familiar park pigeon, is common in parts of the west. It lives along much of the Pacific Coast and in the mountains, moving about nomadically to feed on acorns, berries, or other wild food crops.

Band-tails are sociable, foraging in flocks at most seasons and often nesting in small colonies. Unlike many doves, they do much of their feeding up in trees. The band-tailed pigeon (Patagioenas fasciata) is a medium-sized bird of the closest relatives are the Chilean pigeon and the ring-tailed pigeon, which form a clade of Patagioenas with a terminal tail band and iridescent plumage on their necks.

There are at least 8 sub-species, and some authorities split this species into the northern band-tailed pigeon (Patagioenas fasciata) and Class: Aves. Discrimination abilities of pigeons. In a famous article inWatanabe, Sakamoto and Wakita described an experiment which showed that pigeons can be trained to discriminate between paintings by Picasso and by birds were first trained on a limited set of paintings: when the shown painting was a Picasso, the pigeon was able to obtain food by repeated pecking; when it was.

Band-tailed Pigeon: Large dove, small, purple-gray head and broad neck with distinctive, thin white band on nape. Back and wings are purple-gray, underparts grade from purple-gray neck and breast to white belly.

Tail is pale gray, dark band at base. Bill, legs,feet are yellow. Swift direct flight. A backwoods relative of the ubiquitous Rock Pigeon, the Band-tailed Pigeon is common in forests of the Pacific Coast and the Southwest. A sociable bird with a mellow coo, it forms large flocks in mountain forests where it feeds on seeds and fruits.

As flocks pass overhead, these large, swift-flying pigeons can resemble Rock Pigeons, so look for the long tail with a wide, pale band at the tip.

As flocks pass overhead, these large, swift-flying pigeons can resemble Rock Pigeons, so look for the long tail with a wide, pale band at the tip. Pigeons are also categorized into different classes – either by appearance or behavior, or certain strains that have been selectively bred.

These are: Asian Voice and Feather Pigeons – these originated in Asia and are developed with extensive feathering or their trumpeting, which is a low laughing-style voice. This book deserves to be in every library if just for the extensive bibliography found at the end of each chapter.

A flock of South American Band-tailed Pigeons were rescued from illegal wildlife trade and brought to the Bronx Zoo, where collaborator David Oehler initiated a research program to gain knowledge for Passenger Pigeon de-extinction by studying the care needs and development of Band-tailed Pigeon offspring.

Unfortunately, this pursuit was incredibly harmful to bird populations, especially the band-tailed pigeon.

Pigeons have featured in numerous experiments in comparative psychology, including experiments concerned with animal cognition, and as a result we have considerable knowledge of pigeon intelligence.

About the Author Sophie has travelled from the Antarctic to the Arctic and numerous places in between to both draw and study birds. She co-authored and illustrated a Guide to the Birds of Mexico and Northern Central America (Oxford University Press), a Field Guide to the Marine Mammals of the Pacific Coast (University California Press) and written and illustrated three children’s books about.
