    Yesterday, I came home from school and immediately checked to see if my young pigeons were home yet. They've only been flying for about 1 week and a half yet they are venturing far out. Anyways, since they weren't inside, I decided to take a stroll and perhaps see if I could spot my two pigeons...

    Taking in a new pigeon rescue may be a regular thing for many of us and, if so, keeping the bird isolated for a while may seem obvious, but here's a case in point. Three days before Christmas, when my regular balcony ferals came for their food from a tray on the door mat, one was left behind...

    I wet out to my breeding box the other day and one of the birds wings was hanging low and touching the floor. When I handle him, the wing is very limp. He is missing just a few feathers. I am wondering how that can happen....The loft is secure, however a cat tried to get though the trap one...

    A while ago i spotted a ring-neck dove in my garden and it was limping....badly. other birds attacked it and it always had to lie down when eating. His Bad leg looked broken,and it the cause may have been he got caught in a wire fence. I Decided to call him "Little Hoppy". He came by nearly ever...

    I found a pigeon in the parking lot, it is pretty dirty around here since it's Boston and it's in Chinatown. I found it walking very well and it can run fast. Right now it's under a car and I can't get it out. My mother works at the local hospital and can get some hostpital tape so I can bandage...

  8. I found a pigeon or dove - now what?
    Hi All, I've got an injured pigeon on my balcony. It's wearing a tag: Feed Egypt 2001 plus a number I can't remember (sorry, but can go look again if need be). I think it has a broken right wing. I can't bring it in the house because my cat will not leave it alone and it is safe on the balcony...

    I wrote a couple months ago about one bird with a swollen foot, I've been keeping an eye on it, feeding it, and lots of other birds come eat, too. I've just today noticed ANOTHER bird limping, also with swollen toes... I couldn't catch the first one, now there are two - any way someone could...

    Hey Everyone, Long time no talk! Robin says Hi!! Today we picked this little guy (or girl) up off the street, the left wing doesn't seem to work so I'm afraid he's been hit by a car. I can take him to my vet tonight (who does assessments and then refers to the Toronto Wildlife Centre if...
  11. I found a pigeon or dove - now what?
    Hi, I went to bring my Pearl to the shower this morning and noticed blood at the top of her right wing. I cleaned it off well and she let me get a good look. It is a gash about 1/4 inch right between the wing and body. What could have caused this? She is in her hutch except when she comes...

    About a month ago, I took my yb team out for a 20m toss. I should have checked the weather because 10min after the release, 45 mile per hour winds kicked up. Two hours later I had only 2 of 12 birds come in. I noticed one of the birds was sitting funny. She was laying in a pool of blood. I...

    Hi guys! I just wanted to stop by quickly and ask for some advice - Airbus got attacked by a cat last week and he's got a bad leg and our vets are useless! At first the vet refused to see him as he's a pigeon but eventually they agreed and I went in and saw some vet who didn't even know how to...

    I was crossing Broadway at Thorndale an hour ago, watching a car turning onto Thorndale to make sure the driver didn't change their mind and drive into me. I hear a thump and glimpse a pigeon going under the bumper. The pigeon was more or less okay looking, walking around a bit dazed. I picked...

    Today I noticed an pigeon with a bad foot. I manage to grab the bird as it was so hungry it ate straight out of my hand and I garbed it. I have the bird in a cage now and still eats and drinks water. The bird is quite skinny. It seems to have an long wound down the leg with clogged up blood...

    Last Thursday, Coalie perched on top of the rats' (two girls) cage, and before I could get him off (having read that rats are predatorial), one of them bit his toe and wouldn't let go. Coalie was hanging upside down, flapping, trying to get away. By the time I got over there, Coalie had freed...

    Hi all - I need a little help/advice. I just witnessed a black bird (might have been a cow bird) attack and peck the heck out of the little guy pictured below. When I picked him up he was still breathing but the toes didn't grip my finger. Eyes are half mast. He didn't seem to be able to...
