Common Wood Pigeon (Columba palumbus)
Macedonia contains the largest representation of the pigeon family in all of Europe, and we can find these birds in large numbers here. Hunting is allowed from early August until the end of March. The pigeon can be mostly found in the high forest, where it tends to nest. It can be found in Berovsko, the Shara Mountain area, the Krushevo area, and many other similar sites in Macedonia.
As the majority of its diet is vegetables, leaves of carnations, and of leguminous plants, the pigeon tends to feed in open fields or lawns and gardens, and is often present in rural areas. While you are searching for pigeons, undoubtedly it will present an extraordinary opportunity to discover the beauty of picturesque Macedonian villages. Do not miss that opportunity.
