  2. I found a pigeon or dove - now what?
    Hello, yesterday I found two baby pigeons that had fallen from their nest on Broadway in Manhattan, very high traffic area. They were huddled against each other, one laying down, I assume from dehydration since it was 100 yesterday. They are older, almost adult size, but they're feathers are...

    Once again, putting my pigeon rescuer hat on. :) I was putting some food out on the balcony just after lunch, when I noticed a pigeon I thought didn't look that great. He looked old and dirty, and didn't appear to be able to eat, not even the small seeds I put out. I have some photos...

    Olivia, my dove, is a little over two months old now and she started having a funny voice. Until yesterday she was peeping, now she is honking. My questions is, do they go through the voice change like pigeons? She had so many problems going on until now, just want to put my mind at ease...

He was found in a parking garage, disoriented. I cannot get him to eat, short of force feeding him, but he...

    Hi everyone, Just found this little magpie fledgling sitting in the middle of a road. Parents were nowhere to be seen, so I took it home. It's in a cat carrier now. Seemed quite feisty, so I don't think there's anything wrong with it. I wonder what should I feed it though. I put a bowl of...
  9. I found a pigeon or dove - now what?
    I found a ringneck dove in a playhouse that was built RIGHT by my aviary. The bird was trying to get IN the aviary through the mesh. He is not full-grown unless he is a midget, and he is beautifully feathered in a rich, deep brown. He seems healthy enough, all I saw was a flat fly and he...

    I have just been to band my latest round. I've left the birds pretty much undisturbed since checking the eggs had hatched so, I was dismayed to find that one pair have babies of very unequal sizes. I've posted a photo so you can see if I am panicking unnecessarily! So, my dilemma....will they...

    I rescued a bird about a month ago who couldn't fly and brought him to an avian vet. The bird had an older injury (bitten by a cat or dog perhaps) on his wing and new feathers were growing in. He's fairly lethargic and scared of me but he's fairly healthy and one wing works. He still can't...

    Sorry for asking so many questions!! Okay, so I'm too afraid to try putting the eyedropper into the crop so I scrapped that idea for now. I'll be able to when they're bigger but they're just so tiny right now! So what I tried this last feeding was making a hole in the side of a take-out cup...

    Hey Folks....Been away for a while, Happy Belated Easter! Very busy with lots of bunny babies to take care of....:) A while ago, I posted about my pair of Damascenes that had chicks that didn't live past 10 days. After 2 disappointing rounds (and many un-hatched chicks), I decided to give them...

    My husband brought home a fledgling the other night. He appears to be healthy ... just missing his parents I'm sure. Whenever I put him back in his box, he just squaks and presses against the side of the box. My husband works at a five-star hotel here in Hawaii, where the bird had been found in...

    Before my little pet pigeon wandered into my life, I knew absolutely nothing about birds. But about a month ago a friend of mine found an adolescent (healthy) pigeon in a nearby city that followed him around until finally he easily took him home with him. From what I understand, this probably...

    Hi All, Just a quick question about Destiny. SHe is in the brooder where the temp is about 89, should I start reducing that temp? If so how much and when. Terry, SHe is lovin the increased amount of food. Hopefully she will be catching up to where she should be very soon.
