    My bird was attacked by a cat. He had him by the neck, dragged him about 5 feet and dropped him. The bird seems fine,no lost feathers or wounds. He seems traumatized, flying but mostly sitting quietly all day. It happened two days ago. I noticed his crop seems more extended than the other...

  3. I found a pigeon or dove - now what?
    Hello wonderful pigeon lovers, On my way home tonight I saw a pigeon in the middle of the street obviously having some difficulty. The wildlife rehab center opens at 9am, but until then I'd love some advice. The pigeon was meandering in the street, made no attempt to fly, and had its head...

    Hi, my wild bird came to me and had a severely broken leg. Last week the splint finally came off and the leg has healed but is weak and she is only using it as a crutch, not much weight bearing and not gripping with her toes yet. I am doing physio with her and vet feels she may still get proper...

    A mourning dove was flying erratically and crash landed in my yard. It seemed stunned so I hoped it would fly off, but it didn't. All it did was hobble closer to my house over the snow (I am in Michigan and there is about 4 inches of snow). When I attempted to capture the bird it tried to fly...

    Hello! I'm in Southern California and I found a pigeon outside my driveway (I think its one of the ones that lives on my roof) this afternoon with its wing dragging, so I caught it in a box and put it inside my garage.

    I found a pigeon/dove on the way home from work that had been hit by a car (I think). She was very disoriented and I thought had a broken wing. On closer inspection, both wings appear to be okay but the left leg is broken at the (knee?) joint. The foot is slightly swollen and although warm is...

    Hi everyone. It's been only a few months since I first posted about a baby we found. Now I have an adult pigeon that we rescued from a kid and his skateboard. :mad: I was able to walk right up to this pigeon and scoop him up. He didn't protest at all, so I'm a bit worried about that. His left...
