Why is it we never see baby pigeons?


Answer by  fig (71)

Pigeon chicks are vulnerable to predators and therefore need to remain in the nests of their parents until they are ready to fend for themselves. Once they are ready to leave their nests, they look almost like adult pigeons, except that these juveniles (who are not chicks any longer) have a more mottled appearance in their plumage.

Same reason you never see baby squirrels or baby raccoons. Infants are kept sheltered, away from potential predators. Baby pigeons stay in the nest, out of sight, until they're ready to survive on their own. This is not the case among humans, where babies are taken to movies and restaurants and concerts. If only humans were like pigeons!
