    I have a young bird (4-8mos?) I've only had him about a month. About a week after I got him home he started up with what seemed respiratory symptoms, snotty sneezing and making a wet sound like he was trying to clear his throat. He got treated with Tylan/doxycycline and seemed to come around...

    Hello, All. I found an otherwise healthy pigeon today sitting against a wall in my neighborhood. I could tell he was injured because his wing was drooping, so I went out and scooped him up (not without the bird's protest). I brought him in the house and placed him in a cage to let him settle...

    This may be a novel point but why don't we state where we are from in a thread. Awhile back I started a thread that just said "michigan" to find out where the other michiganders were located. Maybe this way if we needed to contact other members in area as resource we knew who to contact. joe

I thought at irst it was a broken leg, but upon closer inspection, it's actually thread looped tightly around his foot. The thread had become tangled so tight that he has lost a claw, I don't...

    Hi :) I got a call from my sister today. A couple young girls in the neighborhood found an injured bird. It was by the side of the road, so probably hit by a car. This is a scary one for me... Wings seem fine, and she is eating well- No visible bleeding, but cocks her head to the side and walks...

    I went down to the cinema today with sandwich bag of seed and there were 9 birds waiting there for me. Then 4 more came to join, one of which was an injured bird. Her left leg turns in towards her right leg. I wondered how I could catch her. The birds here aren't friendly towards me just yet...

    My daughter found a pigeon flopping around on the street several hours ago in Bilbao Spain. We are from the US and do not know if there is a place to take sick and injured birds here like we have in Florida and have no idea how to even begin to find something like this out here. We gently...
  15. I found a pigeon or dove - now what?
    I feed pigeons in a nearby park—after returning from several days away, I noticed there were two young birds, away from the larger flock (they have some yellow on heads, feathers not grown in fully under wings, can hop but not fly). They were cheeping and pecking at adult birds for food, but...

    At the moment i have two suqabs that i am training, but one was recently mauled by a hawk and is recovering. How will the healthy bird do if I try and release it by itself? Should i wait until the injured bird is recovered to start distance training again?

    I was feeding them in the parking lot and my neighbour yelled at me. I'm very sad but it looks like I have to move the birds out of my balcony and seal it off. I spoke to a wildlife group who take care of birds, but they won't help me move the flock. They said they will take care of any injured...

    Hey, hey. :) I never posted on here before... Yesterday, whilst walking in a park type area, we discovered a racing pigeon. The park is full of feral pigeons, but this was stood out a lot due to his/her unusual appearance. Someone had scattered wild seed for the pigeon, and it was walking...
