Why do some pigeons have tags on their feet?

I decided to take a break at a park in the city before catching my bus the other day, and I noticed that all the pigeons walking around my bench had these tags around their legs that looked like metal bracelets. What are they for?

    They are to track them. Scientists use it to track they population, and where they migrate.

    Good question. I would be interested in knowing this also. By the way, have you noticed that many pigeons limp or have a deformed foot?

    The tags indicate that these pigeons are not very good homing pigeons , so stay away from them
