Pigeons are easily found the world over. They are available in numerous colors and sizes. In large numbers, they can turn out to be a quite a nuisance. These birds are known to travel long distances in search of food. Sometimes, they can even travel up to ten miles or beyond looking for food and water.
Pigeons do not have a great immune system and are known to develop various diseases quite frequently. There is no particular place where a pigeon would go to die. Sometimes, it might die in its nesting place and sometimes it might just end up dying anywhere.
If they are found dead on the ground, animals like dogs, cats, rats, etc. will eat them up in no time. You might only find a few shreds of feathers lying around. If they end up dying on roofs, attics, lofts, etc. insects, birds, other microorganisms and scavengers found in the wild will eat it up slowly. Decomposing and decaying is a common feature if the bird is left to rot for long periods of time.
The civic authorities also play a crucial role in removing dead pigeons before they start decomposing. These birds have a unique characteristic of hiding their diseases and illnesses for long periods of time making it very difficult for owners or wildlife enthusiasts to spot any deformity or illness in these birds. Timely treatment is not really possible in many cases. They are known to travel to a lonely place before dying. So finding a dead pigeon is not very easy.
