    Hi everyone, I'm looking for some help regarding an injured pigeon I've secured in Berkeley, CA. First of all, I'm not familiar with birds and I don't have the resources or space to care for this one longer than a couple of days. Please reach out if you can help. I found this bird around...
  3. Wild or 'Feral' Pigeons
    Hi. I'm new to this forum (and also to pigeons). I'm sorry if I post this in the wrong section. So on Tuesday, my sister and her colleagues found an injured pigeon. They took him (I'm guessing it's a male) to nearby animal hospital and the vet said one of his wings had to be amputated as the...
  4. I found a pigeon or dove - now what?
    We found this beautiful little pigeon who can't fly. What can we do for him? We've contacted the owners but so far we've had no response. We'd love to keep him if his owners don't contact us, but we need a lot of guidance on what to do as we've never found a pigeon before. He seems to be...

After the feed I was cleaning the dog kennel and chased a hawk out of the bushes, it must have been there since yesterday cause the...

    Hi I found a wild pigeon on the road 5 days ago. I am presuming it had been hit, or clipped by a vehicle, as it was sitting on the road motionless, but alive. I took it home and have kept it in a cage ever since. It has now started drinking water and eating a tiny bit of wild bird food. I live...

    Hi, There's an injured or dying pigeon on my balcony and I have no idea what to do. I feel awful for it, even though pigeons and all birds terrify me to no end.

    Thank you for providing so much helpful information on this forum. Two hours ago we noticed a large, apparently full grown pigeon hanging out by the fountain on our condo's common patio area.

    I found an injured adult pigeon a few hours ago. It did not try to scamper away, was hard to rouse enough to get it to drink. I have given it the electrolyte water, it isn't drinking much - needs much prompting to sip. I think it was either hit by a car or flew into something. I notice a back...
