PIGEON ( a.k.a. rock PIGEON)
Rock PIGEONS are not the most POPULAR birds on the PLANET, are they? But the are PREVALENT just about everywhere, especially in heavily POPULATED PLACES where many PEOPLE consider them PESTS.
Originally they lived in Europe, North Africa and most of Asia. For more than 5,000 years, humans have eaten them (squab) and/or raced them. (They return home speedily when released from distant sites.)
According to the Cornell Lab of Ornithology, rock pigeons were brought to North America in the early 1600s by colonists.
