The City of Phoenix Is Now Fining Residents For Feeding Pigeons

Earlier this summer (June 2019) the city of Phoenix passed a new ordinance that imposes a fine of $150 all the way up to a potential $2500. They’re not messing around!

This isn’t going to the park and tossing breadcrumbs to ducks and some pigeons intervene, no, this is about your property.

It’s about residents that have bird-feeders that attract pigeons that then become residents. Or at least they become a neighborhood nuisance. It’s really about providing a source of food of any kind that creates a pigeon problem for your neighbors.

If you have a pigeon problem on your property now or in the future, the first thing to do is make sure you aren’t accidentally providing them with a source of food.

Make sure you bring in any bird-feeders that have seeds, and other pet food that you might have outside. Insects can also be a source of food.

Not only will residents that get caught feeding pigeons get fined by the city, they also risk a serious pigeon infestation that can major damage to their property. It’s always a good idea to do what you can to deter pigeons from nesting on your property.

Not only will you save money along with the frustration and ire of your neighbors, your roof and home will be saved a lot of potential damage.

Remember, Don’t feed the pigeons!
