Well, perhaps some individuals will be injured and you will want to help them, or you may decide to eat delicious and useful pigeon meat, or maybe something else will make you take such actions. There are a lot of options here. Therefore, how to catch a pigeon read further in the article.
Fishing with bare hands
This is the easiest and most effective method. All that is required of you is a little food, patience, good reaction and agility. So, we take food and start feeding the birds. The main thing is not to make sharp and frightening movements. Pigeons will quickly get used to you and even trust you. After that, catching at least one hand will not be a big problem.
To do this, when feeding, just take the food on the palm and stretch out your hand. The most trusting birds will surely sit on the hand and begin to peck food from the palm of their hand. This is where you need to catch them. The main thing is to be careful not to harm the bird and is agile and fast enough to catch it.
Catching sleeping pigeons
This is another simple and uncomplicated method. To implement it, you need to find a place where pigeons spend the night. After we arrive there at night with a flashlight and calmly catch them. Also recall that birds usually spend the night in the empty attics of various buildings.
Fishing on the fishing net
This method is great for mass capture of pigeons. So let's consider how to implement it. To do this, take a piece of fishing nets. It is also better to perform the procedure with a partner, otherwise the capture may fail. We lay a net and pour food over it. Grain, seeds, bread crumbs, etc. are excellent for food.
Now we are waiting for the birds to fly for a treat. Further, when everyone gathered, we quickly stuff a network with two partners from a partner. It is desirable to do everything at the same time and quite quickly, then no bird will have time to fly. In order to succeed, before fishing you can practice with your partner several times.
We catch the usual box
A rather old and effective method of catching not only pigeons, but also other birds. To use it you will need a box, the size of which depends on how many birds you intend to catch. In addition, we say that if you need to catch only one bird, then it is better to make the box not very large. Also, its frame is better to make from wooden bars, and the box itself is tightly covered with a nylon mesh.
So, the pigeons will see the sky through the net and will more likely go under the box. A loosely stretched net will help fix the pigeon you need without releasing the rest. Then, when the bird is fixed, the box rises and the rest of the individuals are released. Now let's go back to the process of catching. So, in addition to the box will still need a small stick and a long thread.
Now we take a string and tie one of its ends to a stick. Next, turn the box and slightly raise one side. The raised side is fixed with a cooked stick. Next, scatter a little food around the box, and under the box itself sypyem a little more. It is also worth remembering that the opposite side to the raised side should have the greatest amount of treats.
Now we take the free end of the thread, move away and wait. When the necessary birds will be near the far wall of the box, pull the thread. Thus, the stick will fly out from under the box and it will cover the birds that were under it. It remains only to quickly run up and hold the box so that the pigeons, trying to take off, do not turn it over. That's all, it remains only to carefully remove the caught birds.
For such fishing is made a loop of fishing line. The method of bait birds is the same as before. Pour food, put a loop and wait until the desired individual will climb into it. Next, tighten the loop and the dove is caught. The main thing to be careful, because this method can greatly harm the bird.
How to catch those who live in an apartment?
Today, pigeons on the windowsills - this is a common phenomenon, especially if you live in a high-rise building. Fishing under these conditions becomes even easier. Open the window and scatter the food so that the bird must come behind him into the apartment. When the dove is in the apartment, we quickly close the window and catch it.
It is advisable to check that the remaining windows and doors also remain closed. You can even catch such a bird with your hands, but it is better to use a net for this. You can also use a bedspread or sheet that you want to throw on the bird so that it does not fly around the apartment.
Finally, let's say that there are many other methods of catching pigeons. Also, you yourself can come up with your method. All you need is savvy and good reaction.
