Wood pigeon (Columba palumbus) occurs throughout Europe except for Iceland and the northern parts of Russia and Scandinavia. It is found also in western Asia and in a belt stretching from Turkey to the north-western India and western China. Wood pigeons are also found in parts of northwestern Africa. In the westernmost and southernmost parts of its range, the Wood pigeon is sedentary while others leave their breeding areas and migrating south for the winter.

Wood pigeons are nesting in virtually all environments within the distribution area. Forests, parks, gardens and even houses have come to serve as breeding grounds. The nest, a rather sloppily made ​​construction of twigs, is built primarily in dense conifer.

Wood pigeons are herbivores and live almost entirely of seeds, berries, shoots and buds, but also other delicate parts of plants are included in the diet.
