2002) also observed higher number of blue rock pigeons in old buildings, and suggested that (old) historical buildings provided shelter in a large number of roosting and nesting sites to pigeons.
Key words: Wild blue rock pigeon, hematological values of pigeon, serum biochemistry of pigeon.
However, literature on hematological and serum biochemical values of blue rock pigeon is limited.
Results of hematological and serum biochemical profile of wild blue rock pigeon are presented in Table I.
