  1. Wild or 'Feral' Pigeons
    Hi there! We're in east London, UK. We found this sweetheart while doing a socially distant queue (there are upsides!) I noticed her squeaking and she was hiding on the floor in a doorway very scared, with a slight limp wing (she had full movement but it was hanging very low). A man in the...

    Hi everyone, Background: I have a fledgling mourning dove. His nest was destroyed and I tried to reunite him with the mama bird with no luck. Due to the location at the time I had no option other than let him die outside (he was much smaller then) or try to rehab him myself. I have been feeding...
  3. Wild or 'Feral' Pigeons
    Hi everyone, I am currently caring for a wood pigeon. I picked 'him' up from the side of the road, I was driving and saw something rolling around. I turned round and he had managed to get himself on the path and was walking along. So I figured I would leave him there, but when I drove past again...

    Hey guys, We have a white-winged fledgling dove named Norman. (pics below). He came to us by accident and we're trying to do the best we can. I'm just looking for experienced opinions - I know it's hard to tell from an online post what's really normal or not. I'm estimating he's about 14-16...
  5. I found a pigeon or dove - now what?
    Folks, just wanted to check in for a bit of advice regarding a collared dove in our garden. We would have them as regular visitors however since Sunday morning this one has been walking around the garden as well as lying around. I phoned the animal hospital this morning for advice but having not...
  6. I found a pigeon or dove - now what?
    Hi Yesterday we found a fledgling pigeon. It looked very shocked and was in an area where there are loads of cats, so we brought it home. It didn't move for a few hours and then after that perked up a bit. I left it with food (my hamster food, wet bread and some corn from a tin and it has...
  7. I found a pigeon or dove - now what?
    About three nights ago i was walking my dog and saw a Spotted Dove fledgling, and beside it a cat. I shooed the cat away and picked up the bird to find that most of one wing has been torn out. His wing is broken and only the end couple of feathers remain. I disinfected his wing as cats have...

    Hello all, I've posted here before about a baby pigeon that I've been hand feeding. She's had some hard times as she's had 2 ruptured air sacs and pox since I've had her. Her air sac ruptured for the second time last week and we are waiting for her to heal. She also has had pox since I've had...

    On 3 October, I almost ran over a fledgling dove that was in the middle of a country road. It could barely fly so I moved it to a nearby tree. Four hours ' later on my return, it was still in the same position and looking very sorry for itself. I presume the parents were shot as it is hunting...

    Hi guys, I'm about to treat a found feral fledgling for canker (see image, below). After much frustration, I was told today by a pet shop owner (in Ireland) that you can't get metronidazole (Flagyl) in the European Union any longer without a vet's prescription. He said it was due to some new...

    Hi. i dont remember if it was on this message board, but I once saw that someone posted pics of baby pigeons at different ages (several days, weeks, months). I found a baby pij outside (with one leg!) and I think it is about 5 weeks old, but a pic to compare it to would help a lot. thanks!
  13. Wild or 'Feral' Pigeons
    I live near a street corner that has stores with awnings on all sides, and many pigeons nest there all year round--I wish they wouldn't, because it's not the safest corner in terms of human activity and traffic; I see dead ones in the street all the time... Anyway, every couple of months at...
  14. I found a pigeon or dove - now what?
    Hey guys. I recently found an abandoned pigeon near my work. I originally saw him in the morning, and kept an eye on him for about 8 hours. The parents never came back to feed him (and there weren't actually any pigeons in the area). Seeing that it was going to be about -5 degrees overnight...
  15. Wild or 'Feral' Pigeons
    Not even two weeks into the new year and already finding young ones. Lewis found Frankie today at Home Dept at almost the same place where Mr. Humphries came from. There is a mystery about this one though because he is very greasy on his bottom and smells to high heaven of cooking grease. The...
  16. Wood Pigeons & Others Not Native To North America
    Hi, we've found a young pigeon in our back garden. It's tried to fly, but just scoots accross the ground. It's now walked into some bushes and just sat there for about the last 3 hours - and we're not sure what to do. We were able to pick it up easily, and when in the hand it would flap as...
