    Hi everyone.. a couple of days back a baby pigeon dropped into my balconey being attacked by crows.. I saved him from the crows. He had two wounds and some of his feathers were missing. He looked to be around 14 days old, judging from this page, http://www.speedpigeon.com/baby_racing_pigeon.htm...

    Miri was very sick yesterday and I was so worried I took her to the vet last night. Although he treats other animals, he does specialize in birds. When I talked to him on the phone, I trusted the sound of his voice. He said it could be one of three things: not enough energy (although based on...
