There are many ways to trap pigeons or birds, but this is the most efficient and ingenious way to do
What you need:
- A wire cage
- An empty paint pail or plastic bucket with cover
- A plastic water bottle
- Some plastic straw rope
#1. Build a wire cage for your pigeons or birds using mesh wire and some scrap wood. Determine the size based on how much movement you think they will need. Leave an opening on top for the bucket. You can use Styropor on top of the cage to create the perfect round hole for the bucket to fit in.#2. Cut two openings on opposite sides of the plastic bucket using a hot knife.#3. Hang the covered bucket on one side of a simple wooden lever. On the other side, hang the plastic water bottle filled with enough water to pull the plastic bucket up.#4. Fill the bottom of the pail with grain and kernels.#5. Pigeons are intelligent and cautious, so they will not enter the bucket right away. Scatter some grain on the cover of the cage to lead the pigeons to the trap. Once the trail of grain on the cover is consumed, the pigeons can’t resist the beckoning food inside the bucket.#6. Once the pigeon is inside the bucket, its full weight will bring the bucket down to the cage, and voila!There’s nowhere for them to go but down to the cage. Rest assured that once you have the pigeons inside the cage, they will lure the others there.
