found homing pigeon

  1. I found a pigeon or dove - now what?
    A homing pigeon wandered into my garage today, exhausted and seemingly unable to fly. I contacted the club to whom he belonged and the owner is not getting back to me.

He didn't know what to tell me to do with the bird. The bird has a small injury on it's back. I am taking him to my vet later...
