  1. Wild or 'Feral' Pigeons
    Hello, I am hoping someone has some advice to offer or have had a similar experience. 4 days ago we found a baby mourning dove in our front yard, it must have fallen from the nest, which is too high for us to reach on the tree.

    Young Mourning Dove Bleeding a lot (picture) I'm having a hell of a time trying to stop the bleeding on this young mourning dove's wing. I applied the flour, but that only stops it temporarily and I put it on her every time it bleeds. I tried to bandage her and wrapped a piece of clothing...

Baby bird as it is called has done very well, but does not have any interest in going out side and I think my little ones may have handled it abit to much and baby bird thinks it...

    Hi, I was wondering if anyone could help me. I had a doves nest outside my bedroom window. I think they eggs hatched last Friday. There were 2 babies in it & both parents were always there. I also saw Squirrels running around the nest. Yesterday when I looked out, both parents were gone & 1 of...
  8. I found a pigeon or dove - now what?
    Hi! Last year you all helped me a lot when I found a young pigeon. Eventually I was able to release him in my barn loft and he rejoined his parents :) Yesterday I found a very young mourning dove in the grass when I was mowing. He is nicely feathered but small and his tail is very short. I...
