    5 days ago my cat brought in an egg and began rolling it around the kitchen. It turned out to be in the process of hatching, at that point I didn't even know what type of egg it was but something inside was pecking through. After much research on internet it turns out to be a wood pigeon. No...

    We found 2 baby wood pigeons on Friday. Unfortunately one had been killed but the other is still alive despite refusing food. It is quite feisty having tried to peck us but it hasn't made any noise. Can anybody help?
  8. I found a pigeon or dove - now what?
    If anyone can help please. My cat brought a baby pigeon home, which looks about 5 days old. At first I thought it might die as it was bleeding and shaking, so I put it in a box so it could be comfortable. But now 6hrs later it is still alive and the wound looks small. I have tried to feed it...

    Sad tale to tell I am afraid... not too good for a first post :( Anyway, in a nutshell - neighbour had around 10 huge Leylandi in his garden and a couple of weeks ago I was woken up by the noise of chainsaws felling most of the trees. They did the side ones but left 2 at the bottom of the...

    We have watched the mating antics, nest building and proud parenting of two wood pigeons who have bravely teased our dog, put up with the kids using the garden at the weekend and the erratic time keeping of their food being put out. Unfortunately earlier this evening (having been out most of...
