    I was walking my dog last night when I came across a tiny box with two pigeons. It was really cold so I brought them home, but now I have no idea what to do with them.

    Today while at work, I found two baby pigeons that had fallen out of their nests from a great height. One had already passed away but the other was alert and very frightened.

    We have a woodpigion nest on our window sill with one chick in it. Currently it is about 10:30 pm and neither of the parents are on the nest. The chick still has some pin feathers and some adult feathers. At a guess it is probably about 12-20 days old. Is it normal for the parenets to leave the...
