Pigeons nest just about anywhere. There are usually two babies, and there might be no nest at all. They can be found on ledges, in old nests, and even on the ground under a bush. Mothers do not tend to their babies often, feeding them only two to four times a day. If the baby is not injured, leave it alone.
