    Three days ago I was called to rescue a young (almost fledged) feral pigeon who was being stepped on and roughed up by a large Great Dane. The bird was in severe shock and showed labored breathing with signs of injury and slight blood from one of its nares. I immediately took it home and treated...

    Hi, I live in SE Portland and I've rescued a pigeon that seems to have a broken wing. I tried the Audubon Society, but they only offered euthanization. I'm looking for a pigeon expert or organization who I can turn her over to so that she can recover and return to the wild.

    Found this site which offers some very good first-aid instructions for pigeons, feral or otherwise. Might be worth a sticky. If it helps anyone, my good deed for the day is done :) http://www.duckpolice.org/BirdWeb/PigeonResourceWeb/pigeonresource.html

    I was trying to give someone advice on what to do with a bird they found, that had been attacked by a cat. I was hoping I'd find a sticky or thread somewhere on here about what you should do, but I couldn't find anything. A lot of people find pigeons, doves, and other birds injured by cats and...
