Pigeon intelligence

Pigeons have featured in numerous experiments in comparative psychology, including experiments concerned with animal cognition, and as a result we have considerable knowledge of pigeon intelligence.

Pigeons can remember large numbers of individual images for a long time, e.g. hundreds of images for periods of several years.

Pigeons can be taught relatively complex actions and response sequences, and can learn to make responses in different sequences.
