Week 3 July: The Woodpigeon

The Woodpigeon

The Woodpigeon is the largest Pigeon in the British Isles. The Wood Pigeon is grey with a pinkish breast and green, white and purple patches on its neck. Juvenile Wood Pigeons are brown and do not have the white patch on the neck. Its nest is a platform made from twigs and built by both sexes in a tree or on a building.

What do Woodpigeons eat?

Diet: seeds, grain and crops, cabbages, sprouts, peas, nuts and berries.

Woodpigeons eat grain and seed but will eat most food that is put out on a bird table. They also drink a lot of water so please position a bird table nearby. Woodpigeons need water because they do not search for and eat mealworms found in the damp soil (a good supply of nutrients) like other birds.
