The Wood Pigeon (Columba palumbus) is a very important migratory bird in the hunting world in Italy, especially in the central-northern part of the country where it is hunted with shotguns using traditional methods, using live bait. As a result of this, enthusiasts of this species in general, co-ordinated by specialised clubs, have started specific joint studies to draw up a census of the Wood Pigeon populations that breed, winter and pass through Italy throughout the double post-nuptial migration period (end of Septemberbeginning of No-vember) and the pre-nuptial period (MarchApril). With the analysis of the samples and the visual censuses of the Wood Pigeon, carried out within the standard Sky-Way Project, we can state that its presence has greatly increased in Italy (especially over the last 12 years) during reproduction and wintering, and therefore their populations are in a good state like in most of the territories of the Western Palearctic.
