  1. I found a pigeon or dove - now what?
    Hi! A pigeon landed on my 2nd floor deck today at around 1 PM. It is banded but I haven't been able to read the band yet. I did some research on your site and others, and put out food and water. I also put a plastic box with a towel as well as a cardboard box for it to rest in. It ate a bit...
  2. Lost Pigeons & Doves
    This pretty bird was on my patio 7/4/18 at 2:30pm. I went to give him some food - seeds and berries (there is water and wild bird food readily available in my yard, and he had been walking around, pecking), but a noise startled him and he flew off😢. I was able to get within four feet of him and...

    I found a banded pigeon in my yard on Monday, breast appeared to have possible injury, and doesn't seem to be able to fly. Band on right leg (if facing bird) is blue, Band on left leg (if facing bird) is green, marked US 668. Bird is friendly, but runs away if I get too close. I've been feeding...
  4. I found a pigeon or dove - now what?
    I found a pigeon in Fairfax VA last night that didn't seem particularly injured, but wouldn't fly away either. A bad electrical storm was coming through (with a LOT of rain) so I brought him in. The band reads: PL 0384 17 10 707. I put PL 0384 into the google search and that is how I located...

    There is a banded pigeon that has been hanging out on my ceder chip pile for about a week. He has two bands, one blue and one green. I haven't been able to capture him to get any numbers. Ive been leaving some seed out for him. My question is what should I do? Can I just leave him alone?

    My 3year old spotted a "white birdy" and when I looked I knew it was special. Too big to be a dove too small to be a chicken. She, well because I think it's a she, is dirty, skinny and has mites. I was up all night reading this site but I didn't want to post until I had the band ID info (PP 11...

    We found a white dove/pigeon at work today. I was able to catch it before it jumped down with a tiny bit of a flutter fly and went under the dumpster. I will catch it again if it is necessary. It has a band (blue/white stripes) but there were no numbers on it. When it is sitting on the...
  10. I found a pigeon or dove - now what?
    So on my way to work today (like three hours ago and I ended up calling off) I was walking across the bridge and noticed this guy on the walking path. He looked very very dehydrated and his one eye is kind of gone. He was just sitting there very distressed. I think he might have gotten clipped...

    Found a banded bird being preyed upon by local hoodlums (crows) They had him by the feet taking turns trying to disembowel him. He put up a good fight to break free and with some help from a black cat and us humans, he got free from the bird-jacking thugs. He has flesh and feathers torn from...

    Hello everyone, I'm a birder and photographer and while out birding this morning I came across this pigeon. It was quite large compared to the Rock Pigeons I'm used to seeing. It's also banded but I didn't realize it when I took the pictures and didn't get a good shot of the numbers on the...

    Hi, I am new to this board. I came home this evening to find a pigeon huddled up next to my garage door, where it remains after an hour or so. It has a white band around a leg. I am in Troy, Michigan. Does anyone know what I should do? I'm concerned the bird will not survive if left overnight.

  15. I found a pigeon or dove - now what?
    I have found a banded pigeon that arrived in my yard yesterday and hasn't left. I was able to walk right up to it and pick it up off the fence. He is able to fly, but wasn't going far. I now have "him" in a secure dog crate with water and am going to get some food. From what I've read so far, he...

    There is a beautiful pigeon that has been hanging around the hen house for a few years. He is white and has feathers on his legs! I can get close but I didn't notice till yesterday that he has a black band with white numbers on his feet! I think he has lost some of the leg feathers. He sits...
  18. I found a pigeon or dove - now what?
    Hi, a banded pigeon found me yesterday and decided my hallway closet and laptop in the living room were a perfect spot to rest. I did get him out of the house but he came back in. So I got his band ID and put him outside in an old cage with water and some gerbil food that I had on hand. I...

    I found a banded a banded pigeon at work last night. I work with dogs and he just so happened to land in a dog play yard where they all wanted to eat him. I'm not sure how he got there, he seems fine but has no interest in flying. He landed in the keele and Wilson area and has a yellow TFRC...
