    Hi... I am in Alberta, Canada. It's pretty cold and snowy here right now. Tonight I was walking my dog, just before midnight, and he found something in the snow... I proceeded to call and pull him (thinking it was a bone or rotten food)... he finally came to me with the thing in his mouth...

  4. I found a pigeon or dove - now what?
    Hi My wife and I found a pigeon in our driveway this morning. From looking at Sara's pics I would say he is about 4 weeks old, maybe a little less. Most of his wing feathers are grown but he still has traces of down on top of all his feathers. We think he must have been out on the ground all...

    I need immediate help. I have been feeding a few hundred pigeons and sparrows where I work in an industrial area, for a few years. The landlord has threatened to poison them if I don't stop feeding them. What is the safest way to stop feeding them, so they don't get sick or worse? I feel...

    OK. I found this pigeon. Well, it found me I guess. I was walking outside of my apartment to throw away the trash when I see this pigeon fall from a tree to a pile of leaves. I walked over to it and it doesn't react at all. I know its alive though because it is standing up and breathing and...

    Well, I had an interesting week with my pijjies last week. I took my birds out to fly, they returned home, but did not trap in immediately. They had been on lock down for many days because they caught a respiratory infection, so I would suppose they did not want to trap in for fear they might...

    Hi- I've posted here before about hopefully aquiring some racing homers. Now however, I'm not sure what the best type of pigeon for me is. About me- I'm 14 years old, and I live right near Washington DC. My dad is helping me to draw up plans for a loft, which I'll keep in my back yard and...

    Hi all, I need some expert advice. There is somewhat of a battle being waged at work, where the two King Pigeons I've posted about previously have settled in. One camp here wants to leave the pigeons alone. They see no reason to remove them to some home where they'll be caged and no longer...
