"After several months of observation I developed a skill: I notice pigeons."

The Pigeon Movie Database

Kind of like the IMBD, The Pigeon Movie Database catalogues every movie in which pigeons are present, their roles, and how the scene pans out.

Now I'm aware that pigeons are frequently used in cinema. Usually they are relegated to a mere secondary interpreter but sometimes they perform stunning performances. This is the motivation for creating this Blog.

I think that this blog has two aims: the first to provide a summary about pigeon appearances in movies and series and an analysis of why they are used. The second aim is to claim the inclusion of pigeons in movie credits. Nowadays, the use of uncredited animals in movies that produce profits of millions of dollars should be unthinkable. In some movies, dogs or other big mammals are credited but I think that it ought to be extended to other kinds of animals... like pigeons.
