Tumbler pigeons tumble to avoid being captured by larger predators such as hawks that see them as an easy meal in the sky. This is a natural defense against enemies. The second reason is that they use tumbling as a way to change direction when they're in flight. It's much easier for them to do a roll in the air to change direction or to simply do a barrel roll to loose altitude quickly and escape.
Tumbler pigeons evolved with the ability to tumble from side to side or backwards when it is flying as a survival strategy. These pigeons are descended from Rock Doves. Tumbler Pigeons are found all over the world. You can find more information at www. pigeonweb. net/tumbler-pigeon
