    Hi everyone, I just found a feral adult pigeon in pretty good nick, who can't seem to swallow seed - there seems to be a blockage in his/her throat or crop. I suspect it's canker or sour crop or something, but I'm a newbie at this, so I though I'd reach out for some help. I've caught him, &...

    I don't have much time to type but I'll try to be quick. This forum has been helpful to me before so I hope I can get some advice. Found a crow today, that didn't look alright. I noticed it had a dry and crusty beak, had dirty feathers and didn't seem to run as soon as I approached it. I have a...

    Dear all, first, thanks to the creator for having created this forum. I hope some of you can help with this matter. I have a young wild pigeon that keeps on coming on my terrace.

    Sick Pigeon (Unknown?) I noticed my pigeon was laying weird and I finally googled why her head droops when she's laying down and I wasn't prepared for what I found. I know there's no telling 100% until I do some blood tests but it really seems very specific, even if it isn't severe. Her...

    I need advise urgently. i found an abandoned pigeon baby a few days ago. He looks to be 2 weeks old. I tried feeding him in ways i found online. I basically feed him a few types of seeds after grinding them. Yesterday i saw that his throat was looking a bit big like something was stuck but i...

    Lichfield, united kingdom. We were at college and we found the little guy sitting just outside. He let us pick him up straight away, this doesn't seem right. Pidgeons normally fly away when you approach, but he just sat there. Anyway at first we thought maybe he was cold or something, so...

    Hello, I joined this form in hopes to get some help. I had a co-worker call me about a crow that her neighbor had found in her yard. They aren't sure how he got injured, they're guessing that he got hit by a car, but there are also a lot of cats around the area so that is a possibility. I...

    I have 10 classic frills. A few days ago I found one of my young males (he is about a year old almost 2) in front of his water bowl spitting up a clear liquid (I'm assuming water). My dad told me it was probably that he drank too much water. So I took away his water because every time he drank...

    Hi, over the past week, we noticed a pigeon in our garage laying eggs and feeding its babies. We found the mother today dead, open-bodied in the driveway (Presumably from a cat or some other predator). The babies were cold outside so we took them indoors. I am not a pigeon enthusiast or any...

    I know above all avocado is the most deadly thing for a bird to ingest but when I wasn't looking my little friend licked the guacamole on my plate. It was just a tiny bit but I love her with all my heart and I don't want to see her hurt. I just want to know that she'll be okay- or if there's...
  16. I found a pigeon or dove - now what?
    EDIT: Palomacy put my friend in touch with a WildCare staffer who was able to take the bird. All's well. My friend found a feral pigeon in Oakland, CA which is either sick (possibly PMV) or injured (head injury?). Here's her initial description: It's walking in circles, tried to fly into a...

    Hello group, I'm very new to your group. :-) In our German wild bird help group on Facebook, a girl just posted that she found a helpless and weak baby feral pigeon in the streets of Lisbon, Portugal.

    Hello, I recently acquired a rescue pigeon, who seemed to be in good health upon my taking it. She is very tame and hand friendly, seemingly raised with humans. She is my first ever pigeon and I love her a lot, but despite my extensive research on pigeon care, I am still a bit clueless...
