    Yesterday while feeding the birdsin our garden , I noticed a dove without a tail which also was injured on its back, head and was limping - but was eating with the others. We managed to catch it and have it in a covered cage in a quiet spot. It has lost its whole tail, and its flesh is...

    Hello! This afternoon we found a dove lying the street that had been hit by a car. One of his wings looks broken and is quite bloody. It is not still bleeding. We have it in a small pet kennel and are getting ready to try to clean it up. Is there by chance anyone in the area with...

    So I was at work yesterday when I saw these people walking by laughing at something on the ground. I looked down and saw the saddest little puff ball of bird ever... He was in the middle of the walk way on a busy path and didn't even try to run or get away. It was so cold outside. So I swooped...

  6. I found a pigeon or dove - now what?
    I found a dove in the road today. I'm guessing it was hit by a car. One wing seems broken (it keeps it stuck straight out) and I'm afraid at least one of his legs is broken as well as it is unable to stand. I found it close to 6 and as today is Sunday I was unable to find an avian vet that was...

    I have a pet dove, Tofu, that's about 2 years and 4 months old right now. (Hand raised him since he was a baby bird, so he's been pretty close to me) I usually let him fly around in the room during the day, and when I was changing my guinea pig's water bottle yesterday, he was walking around...

    Hello! Tonight I came across an injured mourning dove in our yard. It's young but older than a fledgling. At first I couldn't figure out why it wasn't flying. I put a box outside to give it shelter and it went in, but it's getting pretty cool outside tonight so I brought it into the house...

    Hope someone can give me some advice, please. Posting from Missouri, USA. We found a dove was walking at the park and tried to fly but couldn't fly high. When we walked closer to it, it tried to fly, but couldn't and 'ran' (slowly) away from us. At some point it rested under the tree. We...

    Today we found a white dove who flew into a vacant apartment home... after closely examining the bird, it was noted that the right eye is deflated. Currently there is no discharge, but I find it unlikely it can see out of that eye. Due to the weather conditions and the time of the day I...

    Hi, I have two pigeons (male and female) and two doves (male and female) in separate cages. Recently I realized that the female pigeon likes the doves and visits them and eats with them and is extremly pleasant. However, today the male pigeon who I have found out the hard way, is very...

    Six days ago I found an injured collared dove in my garden. Don't know what had attacked it - hawk or cat - but the wing was bleeding and it could not fly. I have bathed the wounds in warm water and TCP. Bleeding has stopped, dove is very alert, eating and drinking. Can't tell if the wing is...
