Hi everyone! Here is my story-


My name is Maddie. I started a small business and a not offical non profit called Pigeon Patroll ( I still spell Patroll with 2 L’s), to help birds when I was 8 years old. I started Pigeon Patroll at my old home in Layton, Utah in 2020.


Early in the year of 2020, there were two pigeons that started to come around everyday. I named them Molly and Peter. In February 2020, we figured out that Molly and Peter had built a nest between two of our huge plant pots. Molly had laid two perfect and white eggs.


The eggs hatched and I named the two baby pigeons Cuckoo and Coco Puff. Everyday I would sit in front of the glass door and watch the pigeons for hours. I wrote everything I learned from them in a journal. Watching Cuckoo and Coco Puff…

Hey Maddie, Pigeon Patroll sounds amazing! I love the bird magnets you're making, and it's great that you've been able to raise so much money for bird charities ❤️ 🙂

Wow! What an amazing story in the news and that's how I find myself here. As a child I was freaked out by pigeons and it was amazing to me that they are now my favourite bird. They way they problem solve, their funny walk, their little heads bobbing back and forth, love 'em!

Over the years we've had a few pigeons who've fallen down our chimney (it's now capped!) and I was amazed that I could get over my fear and rescue them. Some were fine, one or two needed extra care and time, one didn't make it....

My favourite definitely was the crazy one who made it all the way down and started flying around my living room!

My saddest moment was seeing a juvenile pigeon in distress in the garden, after some love and care the poor thing still passed away but at least he was cared…

I have recently added several bird and bee feeding stations to my garden. Amongst my daily bird visitors I have a flock of 6 to 8 wood pigeons who are so serene as they wander around my garden - all the birds are beautiful but these chunky darlings are lovely to see and listen to.

I also love to see them wandering on the lawn or cooing on the fence. Love them all.

In August 2021 I found a baby pigeon in my garden. She'd clearly fallen from her nest as she wasn't even ready to fledge. I couldnt find her nest and as she was so tiny I cared for her believing I was just making her comfortable for a few days. However with lots of attention and baby parrot formula she began the thrive. It was an amazing experience for my Son. As she followed him everywhere, he became her personal trainer. She build up her strength and eventually fledged. As she was so healthy I let her go free. She returned twice a day for food and was always there when I came home from work. She'd come into the house like a returning child from school! She stopped coming one day. I hoped she was okay, I'll never know. What I do know, pigeons are beautiful and intelligent and…

Hi all, I live in London and I used to hate pigeons. I have a balcony and the pigeons would poo all over it - I spent a lot of money on pigeon deterrents but none of them worked. Over time, I began to admire how intelligent and resilient pigeons are, and I started to see things from their perspective; they were just trying to live a life in this city, like me, and needed somewhere safe to sleep and nest. I now really love pigeons and hate hearing people say unkind things about them. Pigeons are beautiful; their markings, their cooing, everything. I was so touched by Hannah's friendship with Penny, and I'm really glad this charity exists! Where can I buy the 'every dove deserves love' tee?!

Here in the small market towns of Suffolk, we don't have feral pigeons, but we do have lots of lovely Wood Pigeons who are also persecuted. They are such beautiful and loving birds, we have a few pairs who nest in our garden bushes and trees. There soft lovely cooing on their nest is so soothing and such a delight. We keep a wide diversity of native plants in our garden to help and encourage birds and wildlife in general.

Out here in Norfolk they get huge to. My Mother used to call them low flying bombers! They don't have much of a better reputation in the countryside. Their problem is they're so resilient and good at adapting.

Hello all. I love pigeons and always have. When I was child, I used to love feeding them in Trafalgar Square. There used to be a stall there selling little pots of food…before they decided they didn’t want pigeons any more 🙁 I used to volunteer at our local widlife hospital (it’s closed down now) and loved looking after the pigeons 🥰 We have both woodies and urban pigeons in our garden. I also have the ‘Every dove deserves love’ t shirt!


The photo is from a few years ago in town when we stopped to eat chips and were ambushed! ❤️

I would love a pigeon to sit on me but so far they all just fly away! What’s the secret?

Hello Pigeon People!


It is so wonderful to see so many of you here joining our flock, viewing our website, and learning about the PPA's goals! To get the conversation about our beautiful feathered friends flowing, I'd like to start by asking one question...


What do you hope to see from our charity?
