I found the recipes for cooking pigeon interesting since I raise pigeons myself. We also have the wild Band Tailed Pigeons which migrate through here, but nothing like the numbers of Passenger Pigeons of long ago. I’m not sure they ever existed in this area. I think they were more of an eastern bird, while I am on the west coast.

Thanks for the feedback Pumice, glad you found something of interest.


I have not seen many pigeons here Bob, sadly. I used to do a lot of wood pigeon hunting in England as a young lad for food. We see crested pigeons not far from here, but for some reason never seen them in our forest.

You guys should come to New Zealand. Our native wood pigeons are the size of ducks. I hear they are good eating too, but I think only Maori are allowed to hunt them for traditional reasons.

I should imagine it is a conservation matter Craig. Too many people these days hunt for merely sport and not for food. I believe it is the same here in Australia, the Aboriginals are allowed to hunt certain species of animals for food, but not so the white folks. I think that is fair enough.

Absolutely. Their feathers are used in the Maori ceremonial cloaks.
