The city pigeons are just the tip of the feathered iceberg there are many beautiful and uncommon pigeon types that many of us have never heard of.

When you read more about pigeons they become even more fascinating. Some scientists believe that the modern city pigeon also known as the rock pigeon was the first bird that humans domesticated. Since at least 4500 BC they have appeared as figurines mosaics and coins in ancient Mesopotamia.

Some of us may have entertained the notion that pigeons are stupid at times but this is not the case. A study published in 2017 demonstrated that pigeons like humans and primates grasp the concepts of space and time. Pigeons are also excellent navigators. They can navigate back to their nests from a distance of nearly 2.1 kilometers (1.3 miles).
