Baby Pigeons

Welcome to The Surprising Truth About Baby Pigeons!

Baby pigeons, or squabs, are a unique and fascinating part of the urban wildlife landscape.


Their downy feathers are usually a drab gray or brown color, which helps them blend into their environment and avoid detection from predators.

Blending In

One exciting feature of baby pigeons is their short, stubby beaks.  Unlike other baby birds with wide-open beaks that beg for food, baby  pigeons’ beaks are less prominent and are used primarily for grasping  and holding onto objects.


Their eyes

Another exciting feature of baby pigeons is their dark eyes.


Adult pigeons are known for their iridescent green and purple feathers, which can be quite striking in the sunlight.

In contrast, baby pigeons are solid gray or brown with no visible patterns or markings.
