They can recognize themselves and other pigeons individually, tell people apart, even discriminate paintings of Van Gogh from Chagall according to this study.

    if their lifespan is only 15 years max at captivity…then you should compare to human age of 15 years old (assuming that human lifespan is 75 years old).
