  1. I found a pigeon or dove - now what?
    My kids found this pigeon this morning. Well first my dog chased it off the patio and it was hiding behind a rosebush. I didn't let the dog back out. And when I came back, the pigeon was back on the patio happily pecking away at the ground. I read this website...
  2. Pet Pigeons And Doves
    Hi! Granted it's only been about a day since we (two adults) adopted him. He had been living in an adoption center for a couple of months, which mostly cares for cats and dogs; I was told they didn't have avian experts. Before that, he was picked up on the street because it was apparent he had...

    Hello I have an adult male Pigeon who disappeared for 10 and a half hours on September 11. I did not see exactly what happened but something startled him and he was gone. When I found him, Baby is his name, again he was on my neighbors roof but would not respond to my calls. Normally he comes...
  4. Non Pigeon and Dove Bird Emergencies
    Hi all, Today I came across a magpie with a wing injury that seems to have left her at least temporarily flightless. The site of the injury looks like it might have been bleeding at some point, and so I worry about possible infection in addition of course to the bird likely needing at least to...

    Two little neighbor kids brought me an injured pigeon this afternoon. I made it a soft pillow nest in a cardboard box and brought it immediately to my vet. We have 13 house pets of 6 different species, so they knew my family would care for it. :) It was very clear it had a broken wing, and I...

    Hi, I live in San Diego, CA. On Sunday 7/9/17 I found a pigeon in my backyard. There is a flock of pigeons that hangs out in my neighborhood so I'm sure "he" (for lack of a better term) came from that flock. This is a large wild pigeon. He looks like the one pictured below. His behavior so far...
  7. I found a pigeon or dove - now what?
    Hi all, I found a pigeon who was being chased by cats and was unable to fly. Although no one actually saw the cats bite or scratch the pigeon, I was so concerned that this might have happened (as I understand it can be rapidly fatal) that I took the pigeon to the emergency vet. The emergency...

    A colleague found a poorly pigeon this afternoon at work. It was dragging a wing and unable to fly away. I scooped it up and popped it in a box and bought it home. It appears young but is VERY scared and feisty. I have taken him out the box as I was worried it was too small and I didn't have...

    West Los Angeles, CA United States Hi, I found an injured mourning pigeon. He can't fly. He tries to fly and is able to get a few feet up in the air, only to fall back down without avail.

    I have a pair of homing pigeons that I have been flying for about three months. Yesterday, a hawk got the male and had him on the ground. I scared the hawk away but the pigeon was in shock and had blood coming out of his nose and mouth and had gurgly breathing. I wrapped him up and brought...

    Hi, just joined today because we found an injured adult wood pigeon in the garden. It appears to be just its wing that is injured. We caught it under a towel and have put it in a box . We left it a couple of hours and then gave it some water and seed. It has eaten and done a poop. What do we do...

    Hello, I'm situated in Liverpool, England, and could use a little advice. Today marks the fourth day of a friendship between myself and a found feral pigeon. S/he's a juvenile, I think, although am hesitant to claim certainty due to inexperience - I'd say she's a little over a month old. (can...

    Hi, I came across a crow with what looked like an injured wing and no ability to fly. The crow was trying to cross the street but had to run back when cars came. When I approached (very carefully, from the direction of the street) the crow ran away from me. We ran down a block until the crow...

    Hi. I'm new here and after looking around the board for a while (miuch to the chagrin of my cat who is meowing incessantly for my attention), I have to say...Thank God for whomever created this forum!
