  1. I found a pigeon or dove - now what?
    Several days ago, I found an injured dove in my backyard. At first I thought he had only had some feathers ripped out and couldn't fly. But after doing some research on the internet, I think he has a broken wing. This site http://www.duckpolice.org/BirdWeb/PigeonResourceWeb/brokenwing.html...

    I grabbed a pigeon that a red shouldered hawk grabbed. The hawk cornered himself in my fence and I wouldn't let him pass until he released the bird. There are several open wounds which I've treated/cleaned with habitor. The main injury is to his crop. I've taken some photos, but there are not...

    Hello all, this really is a terrific site. I'm wondering if anyone has thoughts on a bird I've recently found. About eight days ago I picked up an injured pigeon here in Saskatoon. He was huddled beside a parking meter looking more like a ball of greasy feathers than a bird so I picked him up...

    :confused: Hi I was given a street pigeon today to rehab as it was found in the middle of the street last night, the lady who found her said she thinks it could have been chased out of the sky by a hawk.

    I found a wild pigeon yesterday. It seems like the wings are ok. He can't walk, one of the legs seems to be paralized and when he tries to move his head shakes. He's very spastic. I was watching him for a while and I noticed that he can't aim very well to get the grains I am feeding him with. He...
