They are many species of birds in the United States and all are different when it comes to biology. Most birds don’t have much use of the sense of smell. Birds have olfactory glands, but they're not very developed in most species. The same is true for taste, which is very closely related to smell. While people have over 9,000 taste buds, some birds have less than 50. However, recent studies have shown that vultures, parrots, and seabirds have well-developed olfactory glands which means their sense of smell is relatively good. That’s why a turkey vulture is able to locate a dead deer far away pretty easily. In conclusion, most birds must locate their food by sight, sound, or touch. The sense of sight in birds is highly developed. Most birds like pigeons like to keep a constant watch on their food source. That’s why sometimes you will see pigeons perched near restaurants, coffee shops, or town squares where people may drop or leave food out.
Bird often roost on ledges, beams, rooftops, and wires. Birds will live in towers, attics, roofs, and steeples. Pigeons will roost on signs causing an unsightly mess for the customers of businesses. As bad as this may be signs are usually above entry ways into stores, the nesting material can also fall on people as they are entering the store. These unfortunate side effects of roosting often require professional bird removal.
