    Hello, I hope I'm posting this in the right place. I found this little guy on the ground, not near any trees or hedges. I did see a cat run off earlier so I assume the cat grabbed him but he has no injuries that I can see. He was cold and pretty lifeless so I brought him inside and set him up...

    This is the first time I've seen both parents off the nest - even if it was just for a moment. :) I took a quick photo. These babies are 6 days old. Question: Should I keep providing hay for them to add to their nest? I know they enjoy doing this but I was concerned that the nest might fill...
  3. I found a pigeon or dove - now what?
    So my cat in all his wisdom has found a pigeon egg and brought it to me. The egg was mid way hatching, so im guessing hes rolled himself out of the nest. We searched high and low for a nest to put him in but had no luck. Watched the garden for hours and didn't see one pigeon flying. Little...

    Helly Pigeon Talk folk. First post here :) A few days ago I noticed a pair of Pigeons had nested just out the window, feet from me, at work. I was very surprised to see feral pigeons nesting early february, but let them to it. I saw the 2 babies little heads popping out from under the adults...

    How old does a ringneck dove hatchling need to be before they can be separated from their parents? I have a one month old baby that is driving its parents crazy by asking for food, they do not want to feed it any longer, it is out of the nest and can fly.

    Here's an album of Puff and Rooty's new chick. Just hatched last night. There's a short video of the little thing wiggling around getting fed. This one will be kept warm no matter what. No more night of the living dead pigeons. :) I must say, it's been nice having the giant parrot cage...

    Found this little one yesterday afternoon lying on the ground underneath a tree where laughing doves have a nest. Unfortunately the nest is too high to put it back. Now something is wrong with the crop. It must be either a ruptured air-sack or maybe air from the feeding. I know it's not...
  10. I found a pigeon or dove - now what?
    Hey everybody! I JUST joined this forum. I have a parakeet and knew about these kinds of forums from joining one for him when I got him. 4 days ago, right after a mean storm, I found a hatchling, dead in my driveway. The next morning I found another one. It was barely breathing and part of the...

    It has been so hot around here that no one has hatched out any eggs yet until this morning. I was scared that I wouldn't get any babies this year! The weather has just been so extreme here in MO. I only let my pairs have one nest a year or one every other year so I'm not overloaded with...
  12. Wood Pigeons & Others Not Native To North America
    I am so glad to have found this site... Last Monday (4th June) at 9am we found a woodpigeon chick in our garden after it had fallen about 25 feet from the nest. From what we gathered later from online pics it was likely only a few hours old. We placed it on a shed roof nearby in the hope the...

    Okay, so Adrian and Jayden had eggs and they hatched and they've seemed fine... but I had to clean their cage out --it was getting really poopy-- and so had to put their babies back in the nest so I could take out the grate. I've heard/read that human contact with babies can lead to parents to...

    Please help. I have a weird situation. My Chinese owls have a pair of 3 week old hatchlings. One of my female Horseman (paired) has decided to take over the hatchlings. She runs the owls out of the nest box and tends to the young. It looks like she feeds them as well. As I type this, I have...

    My Chinese owl pair are diligent to say the least. I’ve managed to get a look into the nest once so far. Today, as usual, whenever I approach the nest box, if they aren’t already sitting the nest one of them will run and cover the hatchlings. This is the best picture I can get so far.

    Just wanted to share some pictures of the two newest babies on my balcony - Roberto (grey) and Aramis (brown). Paloma (on the nest) is the proud mother - she's a pigeon I hand-raised and released last summer when she was abandoned during painting of my apartments. Harlequin (on the table -...
