    Dear all, For you who don't know I live in Montenegro with not a single vet who knows much about birds. I do bird rescue and work with what I have :/ as there is no other organization and institution in the whole country that does it. Recently they brought me a female pigeon who could not fly...

    I live in Tampa, FL and have recently seen an injured pigeon (not in my custody). He frequents the spot where employees are eating, he can fly but his feet are very messed up, I think he may have a broken toe and other problems I couldn't see. He usually walks a few steps then lays down and...

    Found an injured pigeon downtown Portland today. It's now temporarily in a safe environment with food/water, but can't stay here. Called Audubon Society, but they don't take in pigeons. Is there a rescue group in Portland?

    I'm in the Sherman Oaks California. My neighbor found a pigeon in her front yard which can't fly. She put it into a large cat carrier and called me (I'm the animal person on the street). I know nothing about birds. The only bird I tried to save died at the vet, so I don't feel good about that...

    I just received this one about an hour ago .. It's been a long time since I've seen a duckling in such pitiful condition. The pictures are heartbreaking, so look at your own risk. I will be getting the duckling on a proper diet, starting antibiotics, getting it cleaned up, and pretty much...

He twists his head and is dizzy and falls over I cannot give him rescue fluids because his head moves all over the place. I have him in the house on a low heating...

  16. I found a pigeon or dove - now what?
    I came across a pigeon who was just sitting in the middle of the street. I knew there was something wrong when he did not move as a car approached it. I flagged the car to stop and rush to protect it from other cars approaching (i live in a very poor neighborhood, so animal care is not a top...

    Hi everyone, My plans to capture a healthy feral pigeon and attempt to turn it into an in house bird has possibly changed. For one, the pigeon I had decided to take has not been at the daily feedings for five days. It is possible that it is OK, such as sitting on eggs, or it is possible...
