  1. Wild or 'Feral' Pigeons
    Hi, me again... A couple of days before I set Butterfly free, I spotted this little guy, who’s got a pretty large lump on his face/lower jaw that doesn’t look like the usual pox I’ve seen birds with... I grabbed him to take a better look at it, & I’ve still got him inside, with ample seed &...

    Hello! This is my first post to the forum! So glad this resource exists! I adopted a young rescue (~7 months old) a few days ago who has vision problems. I try to make her feel comfortable by playing pigeon cooing videos on the internet. As soon as she hears them, she perks up and starts walking...
  3. Wild or 'Feral' Pigeons
    Well, I've got myself another fledgling friend, in my rescue box wth some warmth, food, & water for a couple of days... & you should see her tail! When my partner gets home, I'll see if I can get a good picture of it - it looks like she narrowly escaped the grasp of something, probably a crow or...
  4. I found a pigeon or dove - now what?
    So about 8 or 9 days ago my dad came home from a cycle and said there was a very distressed injured bird on the cycle path near our farm. We went over and got put the bird in a box and I took it back to mine, my best guess is it was a juvenile Woodpigeon, probably just left the nest, it seemed...
  5. Pet Pigeons And Doves
    Hi there, I recently rescued a young pigeon that was brought into my animal hospital about 2 months ago. She was fairly young when she first came in, but very healthy. I tube fed her for only a day in a half as she started eating on her own quickly and gaining weight. She became very social...
  6. Wild or 'Feral' Pigeons
    Hi everyone, a few months ago I rescued a baby pigeon I found. It grew to a fine young male & he began to spend more and more time outside. He now hangs out with a flock but still comes to eat on my window ledge once or twice a day. He is now about 4 months & 1 week old, & his neck looks like...
  7. Wood Pigeons & Others Not Native To North America
    I found a young woodpigeon, possibly just fledged, flopping about in our driveway this morning. As far as I can tell, it does not look like an injury, at last not recent. So either it survived some kind of attack in the nest or simply was hatched with one wing. Thus I suspect it may have simply...

    Hello Everyone. First off, I want to thank you in advance for helping me out here... I had a tough decision to make to take this bird, and I felt like it was truly needing help and I might be able to do some good for it. I know that nature takes it's course in the wild, but we watched it try...

  10. I found a pigeon or dove - now what?
    OK, long story short. This pigeon was sitting on our front drive for nearly 6 hours last night without moving. It can't fly and there is something wrong with its wing. I finally got permission from my mother (I'm 20 but I'm still living at home) to catch it and put it in the garage. I've put...

    I and my wife have just reared a rock pigeon from about a day old. It was found by some boys in a barn and they couldn't get it back to its nest. Either it fell out or was pushed out as being a runt? Anyhow by the time they brought it to us (we do some hedgehog rescue) it was very cold and...
  13. I found a pigeon or dove - now what?
    Today we installed bird-nets in our window to keep pigeons from entering, however, while I was away, two little ones were discovered in two different windows, and placed in a box by the carpenter. I am attaching a few pics of the two pigeons, but I'm concerned that they might die or take ill due...

    Hi All, today my wife and I found a juvenile pigeon standing on the footpath right below where I know there are some pigeons are nesting. When we found him he looked in good health but was just standing there looking lost and squealing. I quickly grabbed a box and put him into it and he is now...
  16. Wild or 'Feral' Pigeons
    I found a young rock dove, which are a feral species here (I live in Australia). If I take it in to any rescue centre, it will be put down, which I would prefer would not happen. The pigeon is probably around 30 days old (it has feathers, but still a little bit of down sticking out between the...

(lol~) When i came home near midnight, it was still in the drain! this time it was "lying down" but seemed awake. I...

    Hello all, I am in the North Wales area of the UK. Last night we discovered a juvenile pigeon on our doorstep. It did not appear to be able to fly as it scampered and fluttered quickly towards the road after we opened the door. A car drove over it after it reached the road (which is just three...
  19. I found a pigeon or dove - now what?
    Edit: As of this morning (June 14th), the bird has flown off from the balcony and I guess, to live with the other birds. Thanks for everyone's help! Hi, There was no nest on my balcony, so I'm not sure how this happened (because it is an empty cement balcony clear of any debris...so I'm...

    A week and a half ago, I was amazed and excited when Coalie said he wanted water. He didn't speak the words, but he flew from the kitchen, into the living room where we were, and back to the kitchen. Although he could have gone into his cage and gotten water from his jar, he prefers his...
