  1. Wild or 'Feral' Pigeons
    Hello! I am hoping for some advice. We have a baby pigeon in our garden nesting in our wisteria, it is approximately 11 days old. Thus far the parents have been really good, although the parents have been leaving the baby on its own for a few hours at a time since about 1 week old, and have been...
  2. Wild or 'Feral' Pigeons
    Hello Pigeon Lovers! I recently discovered a nest, parents and 2 babies outside my window in a planter attached to my high rise building back in mid March. I have had front row seats to their entire lives the past 6 weeks and I've loved every minute. The mother left awhile ago, but the dad has...
  3. I found a pigeon or dove - now what?
    Hello, I had two baby pigeons at my window behind a AC unit. I saw their mother coming pretty often until last night. The last few days were rainy and last night the wind was stronger in my window direction. Probably because of the water they moved from the nest to the front of the AC unit...
  4. I found a pigeon or dove - now what?
    Hi, I found an abandoned baby feral pigeon four days ago and could do with some advice and reassrance that what I am doing is correct. I have a tame 7 year old cockatiel so I am not a complete stranger to caring for birds. From looking at pictures on the net I think the pigeon is somewhere...
  5. Wild or 'Feral' Pigeons
    I live in an apartment on the 11th floor and have several planters on my balcony filled with herbs and flowers and whathaveyou. I love my garden and normally go out to water the plants a little every day. On August 12th I noticed a little egg in my herb garden, and a second one on the 13th...
  6. I found a pigeon or dove - now what?
    My location is Canada Water/Surrey Quays in London, UK. A 13 days old baby pigeon was fed by one of his parents yesterday 10:30 GMT (11:30 BST) and has not had any food and water for more than 28 hours. He is lying down in the nest like a dead bird at the moment. His parents have been feeding...
  7. Sick or Injured Pigeon and Dove Discussions
    We have had a pigeon couple nesting on our windowsill for a while now. The first egg hatched 10 days ago and the second one 9 days ago. Today as I was washing my dishes (the kitchen window is where the nest is) I noticed that the older one was gasping for air and couldn't hold it's head up...
  8. I found a pigeon or dove - now what?
    Hello, About a week ago I noticed a pigeon nest on a traffic light not too far from my house in Montreal (Quebec, Canada). Aside from the odd choice of location, they seemed to be doing well, and I could see one parent coming and going. I'm not sure if it was always the same parent or if they...

    Hello all and thanks for the wonderful community. I just moved tout a Zagreb, Croatia apartment from New York (metro area) and while there are city pigeons there this is all a completely new experience for me. Some background: The balcony of my 4th floor apartment here was unused for long...
  10. I found a pigeon or dove - now what?
    Hello everyone! I would like to understand how to be sure that a youngster has been abandoned. I feed pigeons on my roof, they are feral and live in the attic of the house where I live, and they come to eat in a flatten part of the roof. This morning I saw there is a little one, cheeping and...
  11. I found a pigeon or dove - now what?
    I live in South Africa, not many places where they rehabilitate the likes of pigeons! A week or 2 ago I noticed a pigeon nesting in a tree just outside my lounge window. You can see into the nest if you stand in the lounge. We had 2 terrible storms over the weekend but she faithfully remained in...
  12. I found a pigeon or dove - now what?
    Hey everyone. Over the summer two pigeons have built a nest in my back garden in a small tree. I live in Ireland and we have plenty of pigeons flying around. Two baby pigeons were hatched recently. We left the nest alone and the parents took care of the little birds. However, I have not seen...
  13. Wild or 'Feral' Pigeons
    Hello everyone! I've been watching a pair of feral pigeons nesting on my balcony for about a month or two now. They have just laid another clutch of eggs, but I haven't seen the male in a couple of days and suspect that the female has been sitting the nest by herself. Is there any way to know...
  14. I found a pigeon or dove - now what?
    I found a somewhat stunned young pigeon under a railroad bridge in London two weeks ago. I seems that it had fallen out of its nest but could not yet fly back. I was able to easily take it home (I can not really get too close to it now). It started eating and drinking within a couple of days and...
  15. I found a pigeon or dove - now what?
    I let some pigeons have their babies on my balcony. I was going to shew them until I realized they had eggs and decided to let them stay. There were 2 birds originally and two eggs. I noticed about a week or so before the eggs hatched the one who I usually saw sitting on the eggs was gone. The...

    Hi all! This is my first message on these forums. First of all, I would like to thank the owners/contributors of this website. It contains so much valuable information about pigeons and how to raise one and I appreciate it because I just became the "father" of an abandoned male (I think) baby...
  17. Pet Pigeons And Doves
    So after I messed up the first clutch from being ignorant, my pigeons have laid a second clutch. Things seemed fine the first week and when both were out of the nest box I swapped 1 egg out with a wooden one and boiled it and replaced the wooden one with the boiled egg. (Since I'm new at this I...

    Hi, I'm new to the forum and joined because I have a question. I'm currently living in India and our new apartment came with an established pigeon nest which they cleverly built inside a broken plastic bucket on the balcony. Its been great fun watching this pair and in our first month they...
  19. I found a pigeon or dove - now what?
    Hi. I live on a street in Barcelona that is very hostile toward pigeons : ( so this is not the first time I've had a baby out there. They must know I'm cool with them. This time the mama laid her egg in a plant pot. During the night 2 pigeons (presumably mama and papa) hung out on a nearby...
