Borken wing

Please can someone help what to do with a pigeon i have on my window with a broken wing . i got it inside , wrapped it with warm clothing and put it on warm room , but i dont know what to do next . I dont want it to stay handicapped and dont want it to die. it's not sick at all it can move just his right wing is broken , it's been struggling to fly and popping but it can't. His state seems healthy except for his wing .

You can put down a dish of water and one with birdseed in front of him. He might not have eaten for a while and is probably starved. If you know a decent avian vet (one that won't euthanize the bird) that might be your best option for now.

Agree with Marina. And keep him in a good sized cage or box in a warm quiet area. Unfortunately, the wing, even if set, may not heel 100%, so that he can fly really well.

Life isn't about waiting for the storm to pass........It's about learning to dance in the rain.

Where do you live? Our avian vet stitched our rescued feral, Phoebe, back together. She had a broken wing and was nearly decapitated. She became our dearest love. Thank you for rescuing the poor pigeon.
