Habits  Food  and Economic Status of the Band Tailed Pigeon  Classic Reprint

Excerpt from Habits, Food, and Economic Status of the Band-Tailed Pigeon During the winter of 1911-12 there was an enormous flight of band-tailed pigeons along the California coast from Paso Robles to Nordhoff, and sport and market hunting flourished. Chambers (1912) described conditions in that area, stating that one market hunter shipped some pigeons to city hotels, that the morning train from San Luis Obispo to Los Olivos carried about 100 hunt ers each Sunday morning, and that frequently the hunters took an average of 30 birds each. The number of pigeons killed in the large area covered by that winter concentration must have been enormous, for hunters came from long distances. Apparently the birds remained in the area until shot out. This unusual congrega tion of birds and of hunters brought the dangers of the bandtail's situation to public notice, and in 1913 Grinnell in furthering the drive for protection published an excellent summary of the status of the species.
