won this time, when this fellow came in he had a puffed out air bubble the size of a grapefruit on his crop/neck from a puncture wound, no doubt from tangling with a RTH over nesting territory. We got all the air out and got the puncture sealed back up. He got his bandages off Sunday night and so far all is looking good, no leaks yet and he should be good to go in a couple weeks. Looks like the spring procession of mayhem is going to start early this year.
He's in his defense pose, if I got any closer he would have given me a wing-slap like nothing any of my pigeons could do.
