I would be more than happy to post a picture of the two "boys" Rosco and Tooter together when I am satisfied that he has a clean bill of heath.

Tooter is still being kept apart and on his 3rd day of Bayverm Power to insure he is worm free.He has had one treated salt bath water treatment and one more due next Sunday.

His droppings are of good form and color but I just want to make sure he goes through his preventative measures before he gets to close to the other pigeons.I guess I'm just a bit overly cautious?

More pictures later!

No, you are being very wise. If Tooter has a problem you want to be able to concentrate on him, not have to cope with the possibility that it has spread to the others.

Recently 2 injured birds that were fortunately in isolation developed PMV symptoms a week after arrival...they came from different parts of the country and a few weeks apart. It happens.

Oh Victor, I am just overwhelmed with joy for you that Tooter is back. I hate I wasn't able to read of this when it happened but the news has made me feel better. I always felt he was alive, even when you found the feathers but as time went by I believed he had settled in to the wild again.

God bless you and Bev and all your family.

Here is a picture of Tooter close to the baggie of Tooter pigeon feathers that I found a few weeks after his hasty departure.Maybe he was recooperating from loosing so many flight feathers?

Are you sure they are his flight feathers or another bird?

I'm sure he did have to recooperate and regroup after the stressful day he went thru. If he did lose alot of his flights maybe he did have to regrow them to fly or fly well. Perhaps he was also intrigued by the feral flock, and attracted to their life style and obviously he found some food, that he was able to manage until God brought him home.

Anyway, he doesn't need them now, Tooter looks great!

Yippee!!!!


Victor, this is such unbelievably wonderful news!! I'm glad you posted in this thread, I had subscribed to it and was thus notified to read it.

I will check your other thread to get the details of his return, but I am so happy for your miracle!! You are such a dedicated and loving Dad, it's only fitting the universe would reward you with Tooter's return.

Congratulations.

Thank you all for your kind responses. Our whole family is so thankful for your words of encouragement,your prayers,and words of compassion and acts of love that some of you bestowed by allowing us to adopt your pet pigeons.

Tooter return sheds light that there is hope if a pet pigeon flys away, that they too, can come home again to the family that loves them. I had given up hope, though many of you here at PIGEON ~TALK continued to believe that he would one day come back home.

And that he did!

Tooter and I would like to share a picture of the tower where Tooter lived for many months at the Omaha Zoo. He was surrounded by many beautiful animals and other pigeons, but I am thankful he got homesick.

Also check out this link of Tooter's former home:

What a wonderful zoo you have so close to you, Victor!

Tooter was indeed fortunate to "home" there before he returned to you.

Victor, to me, it just goes to show you that even though Tooter had those great digs at the zoo, he still loved you better.
