    Look at that hairdo (the white pasta looking strings hanging off his head) how could any young innocent girl Black Crowned Night Heron resist this guy. He is going to be fine, he had picked up a little poisening or tainted fish maybe, but he's all flushed out now and in a couple weeks he will be...

    Hello, Folks, Today, as I and a friend fed the feral flock, we noticed a bird who's feet were tied together with a heavy string. He could only take very short steps and it was heartbreaking to see him run in this manner to get to the food. After a period of time and several failed...

    string injury pigeon, getting ready for release, was just checking him over to make sure he's looking ok. well, he's got an infection halfway up his tongue. I've seen this before, but it was with a bird with such BAD canker it had spread to and around tongue in almost exactly the same way...

    Well .. I've been keeping a secret .. haven't even taken pictures .. was waiting until banding day .. Two of my SENIOR rescued racing pigeons hatched a baby this past Tuesday (Nov. 27). There were two eggs, but the second egg didn't hatch. The parents of the baby are a 1993 SLO bird (the Mom)...

    The Plover in this series is quite injured .. not horrific .. but badly injured, so look at your own risk. The rest are ducks .. one with a bad leg and another with a nasty ear infection, and a new pigeon rescued by the good folks at Performance Testing Labs: http://www.rims.net/2007Nov21 Terry

    As usual, I went to the local duck pond today to check on all my feathered friends. All was well until I was about 2/3 of the way around the pond and over by the spillway. I spotted an American Coot by itself and kind of just not looking right. I slowly walked up towards it fully expecting it...

    We've had 7 pelicans already this year, lost one to advanced WNV, we have released 2 at the wildlife refudge here in Nevada and we still have four in various stages of recovery. This fellow here is very special, he had a bad landing and got tangled up with some sagebrush, ripped a big gash up...

    :o Today I went to check out a case for Terry AKA “Operation Santa Monica” and I found myself totally unprepared and felt as if I should have been more prepared and I don’t think this will be the only time someone reports this amount of birds in need of help. So I might want to have my ducks in...

    Greetings fellow forum members- My daughter brought me a pigeon that she's been watching for the past few days. She had noticed it did not look good (one bad leg, beak is askew, tail feathers messed up) and has been keeping an eye on it when the local pigeons come to eat seeds from our yard...

    I thought I'd ask, having spent a couple of hours watching some feral pigeons with string injuries in busy city centre. Has anyone ever attempted to catch one in this situation, and how do you go about it. Yesterday, while out shopping I sat and threw some crumbs down and immediately a pigeon...

    We have a family of grackles (I believe thats what they are) that are forever leaving 'treasures' in the ferals water dishes. I've found shells, pieces of bread, & lots of shiny objects when I go to clean the dishes. I think what happens is they drop their 'treasures' in the water to get them...

    This will be a depressing post, so don't read it if you don't care to. I've been reading some very touching posts in a couple of threads where members are pretty much baring their souls .. that's gutsy on a discussion board, but I can feel the concern and hurt behind the posts. In my case...
