injured (feral?) pigeon

  1. I found a pigeon or dove - now what?
    Hi, my housemates & I found an injured pigeon under a car outside our house a couple weeks ago. It looks like he might have been attacked by a cat, as one of the neighbor's cats was stalking him when I found him. His wing at the time had a bloody gash & he was holding it quite low. We kept him...

    Hi - Saturday evening (Oct 10th) we found an injured pigeon near our place. Neck wrenched backwards. Didn't seem to have use of legs very well. Pupils evenly dilating though. Put him(?) in a box with pigeon seed and water on our covered condo roof but the motion was limited. In Bangkok here...

    Location: West Los Angeles, CA, USA We found a pigeon in the alley behind our apartment with an injured wing (visible sores) who cannot fly freely. We are holding it overnight, but would really like if anyone knew where we can bring it. We have cats that definitely hunt mice, and stare...

    Hi, I'm in Surrey and yesterday found a pigeon running away from a cat in my garden. I took it to wildlife rescue and they said there's nothing physically wrong with it except for a minor old wound between its wings which they put some antiseptic on. I tried to release it when I got home but...

    Hi! I really need some help and advice. Yesterday I found this pigeon in a park, he wasn't flying away from the kids that were screaming and running around him, but he did seem scared and he was desperately trying to run from them. He was also shaking. I came to him and told the kids to leave...

    Hello! I just found a fledgling on the side of a highway. She is alert and is able to perch and her wings look okay. But, one does not seem to fully flap. She is not pecking me and makes small squeaking noises when I pick her up, so I think she is a fledgling, but looks like an adult. I...

I grabbed her and because she seemed scared and in pain I gave her some medicine that I had from my parakeet when he hurt himself. The meds are pain...

    I've rescued a rock pigeon from a racoon, i've gotten it to drink a little and in a warm box. He doesn't mind being held. I've got him calmed down enough to get close. Any tips? He is bleeding just a little. He is around 5 oz in weight but fully feathered.

    Located in Faversham Kent U.K. I am posting this again in a couple of locations to try and get more exposure and hopefully an answer asap. Thanks for reading. My wife threw out seeds today as she usually does, and a ring neck young dove came down to eat, was eating happily when another dove...

    I thought it was odd because it doesn't seem like a very safe spot for a bird to settle and I had to walk right next to it multiple times this evening and it didn't move. It has been there for about 6 hours now and it is a freezing cold night. We have many local cats and foxes and was unsure if...

    Hello, I've just come across your site, this morning I found a wounded pigeon outside our apartment building that was unable to fly, or even really move. When I tried to pick it up, it was able to flap its wings and move away, but not very far or fast. At rest, it is laying on it's right side...

    I live in Snohomish, WA (98290), and a friend found an injured pigeon in her neighborhood yesterday. Three cats were thinking of making a meal out of it. She put it in a box with food and water overnight and brought it to work today, asking if I could help it get better, or take it to PWAS. I've...
