    I found a pigeon in a grocery store parking lot on July 4. He could not fly. I have had him in a crate and have been feeding him birdseed and water. He seems to be getting a tiny bit better each day. I've taken him out of the crate several times to see if he's ready to fly. Today, I took him...

    First time poster. First time pigeon owner too. I keep my horse at a barn and every year when it gets hot the barn turns on their overhead fans and invariably some wild birds get killed. Usually they are just cut in half but this year a pigeon was nicked on the wing by one and got hurt and it...

    I found what seems to be an adult pigeon flopping about in the parking lot of our apartment complex. I placed him on our porch in an open box with some food and water but I'm not sure what to do now. He's very alert but isn't even attempting to try to fly anymore. I tried to call a few wildlife...

    Hi all - apologies for the weird nickname - have never used this site before but came across it when looking for information over the Internet on how to properly care for my new little friend, and the server wasn't letting me sign up, so I was starting to get a wee bit frustrated. So anyway...

    I have a pigeon that seems to have an injured wing. I haven't looked underneath, but there is some blood on the outside of the wing. It is resting comfortably in a large box with water and some food (I'm at work so I'm limited to what's available here). I have large square holes punched in...

    Hi, I'm fostering a pigeon who was rescued and brought to me. I then brought him to a very very good bird facility. This poor guy had multiple compound fractures to one wing and a large gash in the wing as well. Surgery was performed and pins were installed in the hopes that this wing may...

    On October 20th I found a pigeon in the road. It appeared to have a broken wing. I brought it home and tried to wrap its wing with vet wrap but the pigeon kept taking it off. I gave up thinking that I was doing more harm than good. I put it in a rabbit size carrier so it could not spread its...

    Hello to all! We just found an injured pigeon. It was hit by a car and has a wound under its wing. I remember reading not to use alcohol to clean the wound and we cleaned it with cool water. The pigeon is quite perky and will recover from what we see. I would like to know if we could use a...

    A pigeon hit the window of my hubby's work and then proceeded to enter the shop. He picked it up and put it outside. It was still there at the end of the day so he brought it home. We have had it now for 4 days. It does not appear to have any external injuries, and both wings appear fine...

    Hello, I'm hoping someone can offer some help on an injured pigeon in Las Vegas. We saw him in our yard last Sunday afternoon dragging the left wing along the ground. He was able to "fly" up about 2 -3 ft for a short distance before landing awkwardly. Eventually we were able to get him into...

    Please help, I found a badly injured wild pigeon last night. I have very little experience with this. He/she has a wound on the front of his neck (upper right side). I think it is infected. I have him on a heating pad and he keeps trying to drink, but some of the water will run back out of...
