She is so beautiful.
When she flaps are the wings eaqualy opened, is it one lower than the other while flapping?
How old is she? Did she ever fly before and stopped now?

It could likely have a broken wing you know they don't show pain. It is weird most animals don't show pain nor do they cry like us. But i'm saying it is sick or has broken its wing.

Which wing are we talking about .....is it the left ?

Are you able to put the bird on a flat surface ....and photograph the wing side in question while the bird is in a normal stance , seeing clearly how one wing is from the other will help members dertermine what might be going on with this pretty bird .

She flaps only one wing, the other does not even move it? As Whytwings said i am thinking about his left wing too. Doesn't have the arched , smooth shape. I am not an expert, but i am trying to make some logic:

No. 1 . In the pic this side doesn't look ok. But if it was only this part broken it would hang down and the pigeon could still lift the wing
No. 2 & no 3 may be a joint problem.
No. 3 In my opinion this may be the problem. Just as in humans, when your shoulder hurts or is broken/ dislocated you cannot lift your whole arm.

You can gently touch the birds's healthy wing and the other one to compare. You will need to stretch it in order to feel the bones. If it's stiff and cannot be stretched don't force it as you can do more damage.

Sometimes there's nerve problem.
Most likely the bird hit itself because it's noticeable.

You can see in the pic where she does hold the left wing lower. Sounds as though she injured it. When you check it, do you feel any swelling or lumps in that wing near the joints?

When you say left wing you are referring to the wing from the left side of the pigeon?
The way it looks in the pic. the the left wing of the pigeon doesn't look properly folded. But it cold be the way she sits. Her wing is dropping, do you see any difference?

Check, as Jay said, for swelling, lumps anything around joints.

Just add pics the way you added before one by one copy and paste the IMG Code.

I forgot to mention , you can run into difficulties if you have reached your quota ( the amount of pics the system will let you upload . There is a maximum amount we can all upload

If this does occur you may have to go to your " user CP " and delete images that you have previously uploaded or delete irrelevant pics .

Hope I have been helpful !
