    Well, I am only a few hunderd feet North of the 'Stratosphere Tower', and they did a pretty big Fireworks display, as usual...so, seeing as I seem to have got my Camera working, I stepped out my front door and snapped a few images. Here is one anyway, and it was quite a Show of course. The...
  2. I found a pigeon or dove - now what?
    About a month ago, I found a pigeon hanging out under a car. It was strange because it was at night. He couldn't fly, he was puffed up and was unable to perch, as he would fall forward. I believe he is feral and does not have a band. No veterinarian will touch him, so I have been trying to help...

    Hi, my wife found an injured pigeon in the middle of the road and brought him home. He wasn't able to walk, so I took him to the vet and they said it looks like he has a lower back injury and they gave him some fluids and an anti-inflammatory. My wife and I currently are staying with my...

    This little pidge came from a rehabber on Saturday. He was found in the road with a broken wing on Thanksgiving. She'd set it and found my # via the 911 database, and now he's finishing his recovery in the convalescent center with Pip, who's milking his foot injuries to the max. Pip had grown...

    So I went to get some soda and as I was headed home I heard a weird scratching noise near a car, I assumed it was the car cooling off. Then I saw my neighbors cat staring at something under the car. I chased Lucy the cat away (she actually followed my command to get the hell out of the road). So...

    I've brought a lovely pigeon home that was about to be 'put out of it's misery'. It has been at this sanctuary for a good 2/3 months, sent there by a vet I assume. It had it's wing bandaged when it arrived, but kept falling over and couldn't get up by itself, so it was kept in a cage near to the...

    Hello everyone, I found a pigeon injured in the road near my parents house. It appears to have been attacked by a cat. Nothing much we could do but clean the injured wing. The wounds seem superficial. S/he seems to be alert and he drank water like he was in the desert! Just seeing if...

    Can anyone tell me what this yellow growth might be on a birds shoulder area. I don't unfortunately have actual responsibility for this pigeon, I just see it each week when I go to help clean and feed some injured birds at this local shelter. This pigeon has an injured wing and has been in this...

    Hello, All. I found an otherwise healthy pigeon today sitting against a wall in my neighborhood. I could tell he was injured because his wing was drooping, so I went out and scooped him up (not without the bird's protest). I brought him in the house and placed him in a cage to let him settle...

    My daughter found a pigeon flopping around on the street several hours ago in Bilbao Spain. We are from the US and do not know if there is a place to take sick and injured birds here like we have in Florida and have no idea how to even begin to find something like this out here. We gently...

    Last Sunday evening, Bob & I rescued a squeaker with an injured wing. He was all alone under an overpass, huddled against the wall. On Tuesday, we learned surgery would be needed to repair his broken humerus. A pin would be placed, but his chances of flying didn't look good. That didn't...

    Aaron's mate died on the 16th, so tomorrow will be the first week anniversary of his bereavement. I don't actually know when this started, but just now I saw him courting a former racing hen called Doodles. And he wasn't just making an idiot of himself, running around sweeping the ground with...

    I found an injured pigeon about three weeks ago. I found it under a freeway beside a busy road. It was beside the curb but was unable to get over the curb. I was riding my bicycle and picked it up and put it in my backback. We happened to have a medium sized bird cage outside so I put it in the...

    This morning two pidgeons became victims of a power surge. One was killed and the other was sitting next to him with a hurt wing and a hurt "knee" I suspect. The kids found them and I brought the hurt bird into the house. It takes NO time for the fire ants to devour something that cannot move...
