Whilst you may not have seen a baby pigeon it is very likely that you have seen a very young pigeon with its parents. However, whilst swans and ducks can be seen out with their young whilst the babies are very young, pigeons keep their young away from prying eyes and predators until they are older and more able to cope with danger. Seagulls and other birds e.g. blackbirds and starlings all adopt similar strategies to ensure the survival of the offspring.

For ducks and swans the main predator could be viewed as man and on the water they are relatively safe, whereas pigeons usually live in densely populated areas.

The baby pigeons are left in the nest until they can be taught how to fly, this is usually done away from sight, they are fed with partially digested food by the parents and then when they are old enough to resist predators they can be brought out to forage for food.

Because they are tiny little ninjas and they do not wish to be seen.

They are fed for much longer in the nest than other birds are. Fed by so called "pigeon milk" by their parents.

There are no baby pigeons. The adults never die. They've been around for thousands of years.
