Bluntly speaking, a pigeon building a nest on your rooftop, window, or any other place in your house is considered as negative.
Even though pigeons love to live near humans, they do not prefer living with humans. They like to live in empty, old, deserted, dilapidated, and broken places. Often, you can spot their nests in empty and old houses.
It is for this reason that a pigeon nest is deemed as negative. If they build a nest in your house, they activate the negative energy of your house and that is a bad omen. Likewise, pigeons breeding inside your house is also considered a bad omen.
