  1. I found a pigeon or dove - now what?
    Found this pigeon unable to fly. Possibly a broken or fractured wing? Also looks weird so I’m assuming it may be sick. Gave it some water but not a lot and it perked up a little. Both undersides of the wings look the same, but I also don’t know what I’m looking for. If this isn’t a pigeon...
  2. Sick or Injured Pigeon and Dove Discussions
    He's a large male I found last night in the rain. I chased him up and down the road to catch him because he clearly couldn't fly and his left wing just wasn't working as it should. He's got a fresh bald patch on his back and belly, so he's been in a fight - with another bird, not a cat. I...

  4. I found a pigeon or dove - now what?
    Hi all, A pigeon fell down our chimney. The fireplace was blocked off so we had to make a hole in the wall to get it out... it was in the wall for a couple of days but quite active. Eventually we got it out, but it was very ruffled, missing feathers and sadly doesn’t seem to be able to fly. We...
  5. I found a pigeon or dove - now what?
    I found a pigeon today on the side of the road that was not afraid of me and would not fly away. It seems to hold one wing higher than the other but can stretch them and seems otherwise healthy. I put it in a box with some water and bird seed and it has been eating but wont/hasn't drink. I've...
  6. I found a pigeon or dove - now what?
    Found it wandering the sidewalk. It gave up a bit of a 'chase' when I was attempting to catch it. Bird legs aren't exactly fast... So, I eventually scooped it up after it started slowing down. The bird has a drooping right wing and some marks not caused by an animal along the feathers of the...

    So the other day I found a pigeon in the parking lot where I work. It seems to have its left leg injured. It also has a red band around its right leg that reads AU 2016 FOYS 9518. What should I do? I already fed it and gave it water. Now what?

    Hello yall! Today after walking home from my high school I saw a wild pigeon just kinda wobbling around. It wasn't flying and there's definitely something wrong with the little guy. His back wing-tail thing looks kinda crooked so I don't know if that has anything to do with it? Anyways I...
  11. I found a pigeon or dove - now what?
    Around 4 days ago i found a feral pigeon while on a walk with my dog tucked at a corner. It is not able to fly and seem to be always leaning on its injured/droopy wing. I've brought it home and checked but can't seem to find any injuries under its wings. Sometimes its able to walk normally but...
