    Hello to whomever lays eyes on this sincere request for help, I found tonight, in our garden, a mature pigeon laying as if crouched and unable to fly away. It appears to have broken its wing, and seeing as cats frequently roam our neighborhood and garden during the night, I took it in. I found...

    Hi All, I spotted a pigeon being tormented by a cat yesterday morning. He was frantically flapping his wings but couldn't get away.

    Can anyone tell me what this yellow growth might be on a birds shoulder area. I don't unfortunately have actual responsibility for this pigeon, I just see it each week when I go to help clean and feed some injured birds at this local shelter. This pigeon has an injured wing and has been in this...

I had taken to the vet the day before and the boil, bleeding were all from the old broken wing wound which had also became very infectious, although...

    I got 2 free fantails yesterday, other from having mites they looked fine. The cock seems to have a broken wing, trails it on the ground and holds it away from his body but only some of the time. He can fly not too high but that is because they had his wings clipped. I can't see or feel any...

  14. I found a pigeon or dove - now what?
    I was at work last night when I saw a pigeon just outside the restaurant I work at in a small patch of grass. I was surprised he made no attempt to leave when I went up to him. I asked other employees if they had seen him, and they said he had been there for the last three nights. No one...

    Hello, All. I found an otherwise healthy pigeon today sitting against a wall in my neighborhood. I could tell he was injured because his wing was drooping, so I went out and scooped him up (not without the bird's protest). I brought him in the house and placed him in a cage to let him settle...
