Up late, watched reruns of No Reservations. Jeannie likes that show. I learned that pigeons were first brought to this country to be a food source, and it’s in the cuisine of many cultures. I’ll look that up. Okay Wikipedia, what do you say?

They’re everywhere except in the most extreme climates. There’s a lot of info on pigeons and doves. Here it is. Wood Pigeon is a game bird in Europe, and “Rock Pigeons were originally domesticated as a food species.” That’s it, then. It mentions “squab.” I’ve had that once at a Chinese restaurant, so I’ve eaten pigeon.
