Columbidae, originally game species, are small and medium-sized birds, with short necks, beaks and legs, which feed on grass seeds and other herbaceous plants and fruits at ground level. The couple gets together during the breeding season and build non sophisticated nests, where they hatch two to three white eggs. On average, they live up to 15 years.

Some species can reach, in flight, speeds up to 80 km / hand distances up to 315 km. They have the best sense of orientation of all birds, and in fact, the best orientation skills of the entire animal kingdom, being able to locate their nests and/or other pigeons more than 1000 km away. They can also detect sounds farther than any other animal.

Their stomach usually contains sand which helps them grind the food. They provide squabs with the so-called ''dove milk'', produced from the gizzards of both parents. Diluted in water, it is the only food the squabs have in the first days of life. Afterwards, their diets are enriched with semi-digested seeds that the parents regurgitate directly in the young’s crop.

They are very territorial birds during the breeding season. As a sign of mating, pigeons peck each other and eventually become a monogamous couple. The nuptial parade consists of a dance presented by the male to please the female. When the female lays the eggs, they are hatched by both to give rise to new squabs. They are born completely blind, but they quickly evolve. They stay with their parents for approximately 32 days,  afterwards, they start flying and leave the nest. When this happens, the couples start hatching more eggs.
