  1. Wild or 'Feral' Pigeons
    Hi. Today was a sad day as one of the pigeons I've recently brought has passed away - he was sitting most of the time quietly and calmly in the cage, drinking water and eating normally. He did not want to fly anywhere. I found him on a garbage bin at night when it was humid and it was getting...

    Hi there, I rescued a juvenile feral pigeon from the street 11 days ago; it was standing in the street almost being run over. Upon inspection, I realized it was blind due to growth on its eyes and also had the same growth protruding from its ears. The following morning I brought it to a vets'...
  3. Pet Pigeons And Doves
    Hi friends! This is not urgent, but if anyone has insight, I'd love to hear. I adopted a feral pigeon from a rescue about a month ago. He/she is estimated to be about 8 months old (we'll be doing a feather test in a few months to determine the sex before adopting a mate). The bird only weighs...

    My baby is 17 days old today and I’m wondering if I should still be feeding him every 2-3 hours. He seems to not want to eat as much (he gets excited for a feeding and eats a bit then doesn’t want anymore), and I’m wondering if I should be waiting longer in-between for feeding now. And if so...
  5. Wild or 'Feral' Pigeons
    Hi there! Last night I was out on my balcony when I saw a pigeon flapping wildly and descending from the sky in a spiral. At first I thought it was looking for a place to land, but then it came down hitting some leaves on a tree. A car was blocking my view from that point, so I'm not sure what...
  6. Pet Pigeons And Doves
    Back with another question on my newly-acquired indoor pet pigeon: I adopted a white pigeon just about two weeks ago. He's not a king - looks like a release dove. I'm in the U.S., and adopted him from animal services in Maryland. (Animal services usually picks up animals who are homeless...

    Hi there, We've had a pigeon come to us. I don't know the history, but he is having trouble walking. Left leg kind of stretched backwards but also struggling a bit to balance on the right. Vet had a look (but I couldn't be in the room due to Covid-19 restrictions). She said the leg did not seem...

She typically leaves for a few hrs in the morning but is here about 70% of the day and always at night. She also has a boyfriend who moved in a few weeks ago. 2 days ago she...

  10. Wild or 'Feral' Pigeons
    Hello Pigeon Lovers! I recently discovered a nest, parents and 2 babies outside my window in a planter attached to my high rise building back in mid March. I have had front row seats to their entire lives the past 6 weeks and I've loved every minute. The mother left awhile ago, but the dad has...
  11. Wild or 'Feral' Pigeons
    Hello! I have 2 beautiful baby white pigeons outside my window who were born around the 15th of March at the start of our lock-down here in Seville Spain. The mother is no longer around (might be nesting again elsewhere) but the father is here many times throughout the day to feed them. He is...

    Hi, About 4-5 days ago, I noticed a Pigeon in the balcony of an apartment in the neighboring building. It was going in circles. I did not think much of it, until I noticed it the next day, doing the same thing, and struggling to fly. I thought It must have contracted PMV. So I rushed to the...
  13. I found a pigeon or dove - now what?
    Hi Looking for advice about a fledgling pigeon I picked up last night in the garden. He looks just like an adult but smaller. He must have flown here with a flock but after all the pigeons left he was still here and sleeping on my garden path. I left him out until about 7.30pm and we managed...

    I have been fostering two wild pigeons since they were just a couple of days old. We are now beginning week 4 and the larger of the two pigeons is resisting eating the baby bird formula I have been using. It is pecking at the ground and trying to eat seeds but I am not sure if any seeds are...

    Hello! Someone please, I need an urgent advice. I found a common wood pigeon unable to fly, no apparent injuries. The vet will examine her to see what is wrong, but I need help with the feeding!

    Found an injured pigeon Sunday 2-10-2019 in a pile of snow. His head was upside done and he was very cold. Took home, warmed up, gave him drink, made nest to support his body and turned his neck so head was up. Propped straight head on nest. In morning he could hold his head the correct...
  19. Pet Pigeons And Doves
    Hello I recently adopted a pair of pigeons from my local rescue. They were originally feral pigeons but have both injured their wings and can't fly and therefore can't be released. I was wondering if pigeons who are adults and were feral can be "tamed"? It hasn't been that long since I've had...

He was rescued as a fledgling whilst being attacked by ravens and was successfully rehabbed after serious injury and has shown no sign of wanting to...
