    Hi there, thanks for for admitting me to this amazing forum! I'm in South Wales, UK. I picked up an adult Collared Dove six days ago and have been trying to look after it since then - it was lethargic, with a clearly damaged eye, and it let me pick it up without struggling. For the first day...

    I rescued a collared dove about a month ago. He/She just appeared in my garden and could not fly but was raising his wings and flapping. I have kept him in a room at the back of my house. He is eating and will sit on my hand for some 'flying practice'. A friend suggested it would be helpful to...

    Hello everyone. I'm almost in tears writing this. I've had this dove for over ten years now. Last Saturday, I noticed she was having trouble laying an egg. I checked the web for advice and put her in a warm bath. Didn't work. Then I tried massaging the area with warm oil and didn't work either...

    Hi all, I have rescued a collared dove nestling after its nest was destroyed by high winds and it was caught by a cat. I have had it for five days now...... And to be honest, did not expect it to still be alive after 24 hours. I am however, not sure how old it is and how it should be fed. I...

    We live on a canal off the inter-coastal waterway in Florida. There is a colony of collared doves (I believe) living under the dock in our backyard. I need to remove them. Does anyone have a suggestion as to how this could be done safely?
