    11. Crop losses. They sit on top of the sunflower and peck at the seeds. Pecks one and another ten falls to the ground.
    12. As mentioned they make very good eating. Some chap I knew used to supply the French Embassy with the pigeons we shot. Apparently there was a high demand for the pigeons.

    Uhm,.... nope. Well, at least not in my experience. Meat is red and quite game-like. Closer to tough ostrich. Very tasty though. https://www.wildmeat.co.uk/products/wood-pigeon-breast-fillets
