  1. Wild or 'Feral' Pigeons
    Hi everyone, I was hoping to seek your advice, please. I've befriended a feral flock of city pigeons who live in the roof next door to my rented apartment in Surfers Paradise on the Gold Coast, Queensland, Australia. These birds have been living in the roof next door for longer than I've lived...
  2. Wild or 'Feral' Pigeons
    Every time I go to the harware store I can't help but look across the street to see how my Feral flock is doing. As far as I can tell nobody bothers them and they seem to hold there own. I know there is more then this but it was the first time I have seen so many just sitting and suning. They...
  3. I found a pigeon or dove - now what?
    Today, someone brought a feral pigeon squeeker into the animal hospital where I work. He's thin but looks ok otherwise. He is fully feathered. I'm working on getting him to eat and drink but he hasn't yet. I have no history as to why he was brought in, where the parents are, etc. I can take...

    Hi All, I am just posting this to let those of you who are interested know how the ferals and the released hand raised birds are doing. Apparently, they are doing very well. They are arrive each morning to enjoy the heaps of grain I bestow unto them. The two babies are the first in my hand...
  5. Sick or Injured Pigeon and Dove Discussions
    I have seen many posts about PMV and I find it very disturbing that so many are being diagnosed with this virus when I believe that it is entirely possible that some of these birds merely have a vitamin B deficiency. The symptoms are the same. The nervous system is affected and tremors, loss of...

    I had every intention of not saying anything about the fiasco that was my last "Pet Pigeon" thread. Some of you said some very nasty and hateful things that rubbed my nerves raw, and with every day that passed without me commenting on it, the nerves got more and more raw. What I say now is...

    I have moved here From general discussion as I now know the bittersweet story of my Pigeon Boy. My neighbor rescued two babies from under an overpass in town. She hand fed them, but with the intention of returning them to the wild, did not handle them much. The One Who Flew Away and Pigeon...

    Okay I have to ask. I read all this about feral pigeons getting into your pigeons.......and kinda get the feeling most think ferals aren't as good as there pets. Well what makes a pigeon not feral? At one time weren't all pigeons feral? I'm seeing some gorgeous pigeons that are considered feral...
  14. Wild or 'Feral' Pigeons
    Hello, fellow Pigeon Folks, I made an observation today and thought I would put it out there to see what you guys think. At my usual feral feedings, about ten out of the sixty or so pigeons insist on landing on me to get there grains. The others are not afraid of me, but do not seem to...

    Dear supporter, This Action Alert concerns the sickening use of hawks to terrify and kill pigeons – a practice, as the eye-witness account to the right shows, is nothing short of bloodsports. Trafalgar Square The notorious Van Vynck Avian Solutions were sacked from Trafalgar Square several...

    A few months ago I posted about one of my ferals droping out of the sky to land at my feet in front of the restaurant I go to for breakfast. That was pretty cool, but the ultimate "drop in" happened about an hour ago at work, where I am now. I work in a small military library in an education...
  18. I found a pigeon or dove - now what?
    I recently rescued a "feral" pigeon and - from the reaction of family and friends - thought I was the only one in the world to think these birds worth saving; so I must say I felt much more normal once I found this site! I found the pigeon clinging to a wire fence in inner city Brisbane...
