Injured in Lincoln Nebraska


Found a pigeon at work that I know for sure had been hit by a bird of prey but managed to get away. Anyway it landed in a tree then fell and couldn't fly. I probably shouldn't have helped it but chose to anyway. Any how that was about a month ago and all external injuries have healed very well . I have taken it out to the chicken coop for some fresh air from time to time. And it can apparently fly well but landings are somewhat hard as it can't see to stay standing well and when it sits it's legs are staying out in front of it. It seems to be able to get up and get to water and feed but can't really stand very well without flapping it's wings or at least extending it's wings to balance its self. It's injuries were pretty extensive along it's spine and deep wounds in one side as well. My question is may this change over a period of time or may I have gained a new resident in my already growing zoo of animals

Could you pls post a ohoto? Hard to say how much the bird will improve. Pigeons are tough. Our first pigeon was a nearly decapitated feral with a broken wing who flew into a fan and broke her wing as well. She was nonreleasable because she could only fly a little and she had internal problems but she became our dearest love for eight great years. Are you willing to just keep the bird even if he/she is not releasable? Thank you for rescuing the bird. We too have a zoo of various rescued animals.

Yeah it's a very pretty one for sure but it would definitely prefer to be on its own . But if I can't get it independent enough I'll keep it 😁

I say you have a new addition (and very pretty one) to your zoo! White birds don't last too long in the "wild" (I am guessing that is why she got caught in the first place) and with her disability I don't think she stands a chance. Better to keep her, or find someone that would like to adopt her and will keep her safe.

Thank you for rescuing her!
