    I work at the Wild Bird Center in Woodbridge, Virginia. This pigeon flew into a window a couple doors down and was brought to me.

    I've secured him in a cage with food and water. He has two bands. The left one is green, without numbers. The right one is orange, AU 2013 ARPU 12957. He may have a hurt wing, it's difficult to tell. But he's walking around, alert, and eating and drinking.
