What do pigeons eat in the winter?

Pigeons eat broadly the same in winter as they do at any time of year, but will look to boost their protein and carbohydrate levels to prepare for the cold. Grains and seeds are high in protein and provide pigeons and many other birds with the protein kick they need to build fat and muscle for winter.

Foods generally become more scarce throughout winter, but pigeons will rarely struggle to find the grains and seeds they need to survive.
