    Apologies -- I seem to have duplicated this twice in the "I found a pigeon or dove now what" section, and I can't figure out how to delete! But, here's probably where I should've posted this: Hi there. I just secured an adult feral injured in a hawk attack, in Boulder, CO. Tomorrow I will...

    Hello I found a pigeon that has been attacked by a hawk, it is still alive and has managed to drink a little water, he has stopped bleeding but has a flesh wound on his side under his wing and his wing appears broken as it is slumped by his side, I have no idea what to do, and don’t want to hurt...

    My pigeon just got attacked by a hawk, he is injured on his wing and everywhere else looks fine... he is still able to walk but is inside now and shaking a bit. He hasn't eaten or drunk anything yet. The hawk was on top of him ripping his feathers out but I chased it away. What should I do? Will...

I have some late hatches I wanted to get out, first few days were fine, everything went good and slow, then on the 5th day, they started to circle a little and a Cooper Hawk came in and ka-bam!!, got one within 25 feet from where I stood. He missed the little pigeon and had...

    Hello 4 weeks ago we rescued a Pigeon, who fell/was pushed out of a nest in the rafters at a Grocery Store. Fully feathered. Took 'him' home, no obvious injuries. Provided water, seed, grit and warmth. As time went by, I 'exercised' "Homero" -everyone has to have a name!. Tried twice to...

    If anyone can define the pattern of cat/animal vs. hawk attack on pigeons, please help. After Juliet had lost for the second time her Romeo (now she is really depressed), I found the place where he was eaten by a predator. Usually when a hawk attacks is after seeing my pigeons on the top of...

    Hi all, This mid summer I got my young racers (2 blue bar, 1 check) and slowly started to learn the training process. My birds were doing great, until the other day when I put them out for a 15 mi flight. Everything seemed to be going well as they were dropping in. I did make the mistake of...

    Well I had my first incounter with the hawk today. I was loft flying my birds, and they were flocking better than ever and thats when it flew right into the flock and sent half of the birds going in every direction. The hawk missed on its surprise attack and after he ruined his element of...

    Today I released my birds at noon around 12:30 pm but I was afraid that was too early and hawks may attack my birds, I was right. I just found out around 5:00 pm. I released my young bird team and they all were out of sight like usual, ranging around, with in a couple of minuets. I had to leave...

    :mad:one of my favorite birds just got attacked by a huge hawk, and I am feeling really bad right now. It was all my fault because I released my pigeon when I saw the hawk, because usually my birds fly way quicker than the hawk but unfortunately the hawk probably got my bird. What happened was...

    Just a few hours ago one of my homers that I let out to fly just died in such an unbelievable way. I was so shocked because this was the first time I let out that bird out of my loft to fly and explore and this was the day it died. It was an ordinary dark check cock and he was a young bird that...

    Today at around four I was loft flying my 13 birds and they circled around my place for about forty minuets, then about four of the older birds successfully trapped into my loft but just when I turned around I heard my flock take to the sky again, each of them flying their separate ways. They...
