    Good morning, everyone. A few days ago, Canada experienced two days of continuous rain, strong winds, and extreme cold.

    Hello I'd really appreciate any help. I rescued a pigeon out of the road today - it has something wrong with its leg and can't take off and fly. It limps around and looks as though it might topple sometimes. It doesn't try to take off in flight. Currently, it is in a cardboard box with some food...

    Hello..I am very new to this so I am sorry if this doesn’t make very much sense. On Sunday (about 5 days ago) we found a pigeon by our front door with an injured wing. There was a lot of blood coming from the wing but we could not find exactly from where in the wing it was coming from. We...

    I found a feral pigeon in the middle of the road earlier today! He wouldn’t move when I was driving up. Looked like he had been out for a bit as there was dried blood on the road and the blood on his wing was mostly dry. He was shaking when I first found him but has calmed down and is alert now...

  8. I found a pigeon or dove - now what?
    About 2 weeks ago now, my husband and I found a Pigeon on our walk that looked injured. We decided if he was still there on the way back we'd get a carrier and call the rescue in the morning. He surprisingly went into the cat carrier without much fuss. The next morning we called the rescue but...

    Hello all! I'm completely new here, a friend linked me to the forums. I'm a cats/dogs behaviorist so I'm quite out of my depths when it comes to birds. As for my case... a few hours ago I was walking a dog when she suddenly stopped and started gently nuzzling this pigeon. It was then that I...

    Found this bird a couple of days ago. His home is W57th and 7th. He has nerve damage and is not able to eat easily on his own. He is very friendly and immediately likes humans. Hold him for a couple of minutes and he just falls asleep in your hands. I am only in NYC for another two days. I would...

    Hi! Four weeks ago, I was passing by a flock of pigeons and I noticed a fledgling was standing alone a couple of meters away and was being attacked by two seagulls. Some people were trying to scare them away but they wouldn’t give up and the poor bird could not fly. So I brought her home and...
