    Hi everyone, I live in central Tokyo and feed a few flocks of pigeons near my apartment. In one of the flocks I noticed a pigeon that always seemed separated from the rest of the flock (seeming a little slower and somewhat dazed). I ran into her last week at night and realized something was...

  9. Sick or Injured Pigeon and Dove Discussions
    First I'd like to say that I have no clue about birds. Yesterday my husband found a pigeon in our backyard that looks like he can’t fly. When we approach the bird, the bird scurries away. We gave the bird some bread crumbs and we left it alone to see if it would fly away on its own. This...
