    Now, I know there are those of you who tend towards the belief that I don't believe in anything natural. I'd just like to say that that ain't exactly the truth--I just don't go hog-wild over natural remedies unless there's some published lab proof. Anyhow, I heard this the other day and have...

    Let me preface this by saying that I am NOT in a good mood tonight. There was a message on my answering machine about an injured pigeon. He had been hanging out in front of a home, not too far from here. The caller was instructed to place the pigeon into a box. Because I had to get ready for...

    One of my doves has been injured by a hwak. Before I could go to her rescue the horrible hawk had peeled back the skin from the back of her head and neck exposing the sinew. I sprayed with aqueous antiseptic which seems to have kept it free of infection. I really thought she would die but...
  7. I found a pigeon or dove - now what?
    Hello, We woke up this morning to discover an injured pigeon on our porch. It appears to have a broken wing. Between our two pet cats, puppy and toddler I don't like the chances of it making a successful recovery at our house. Is there anyone out there willing to try their hand at nursing...

    No -- This is a simple word. A word that most humans learn to say at an early age. A word that comes in useful on numerous occasions. A word - that unfortunately I have never mastered. I live in Portland Oregon, a fairly large town of 562,690 in population and about 2 million population in the...

    Cynthia and I fed the white (and other) pigeons on the green again at the weekend, along with the swans, geese and ducks. Here's a pic of some relaxed members of the flock soaking in the fresh water we provided. Another pic or two to follow John

    I was feeding the pigeons at lunch time and was ready to go back to work. I thought I found what looked like a dead pigeon. I thought I'd take it and bury it somewhere. I scooped it up with a small plastic shovel I keep in my car and IT'S ALIVE!!! I managed to bring it back home and snuck it...

    I wasn't sure where to post this, but need some advice about caring for a chaffinch. My sister who is a veterinary nurse called me the other day to ask if I would be willing to look after an adult male chaffinch who has sustained a bad wing injury due to a cat attack. The bird has been treated...

    When a bird is ailing, what medications are needed? That's a crazy question because it doesn't make sense. Is it viral? Is it fungal? Is it bacterial? Is it parasitic? Is it an organic disease like diabetes or cancer? Is it contagious? Should the bird be quarantined? Did you know that a lot of...
