    Found a blue banded white pigeon in a corner by the door at the Discovery Channel headquarters, by the intersection of Georgia and Colesville, in Silver Sprind, MD. I'm at work, so I couldn't grab him, but I took him a deep dish of water. Google says they get thirsty, so I found a...

    A very friendly pigeon has been hanging out in my back yard for over 24 hours. I have fed it corn and given it water. It follows me around the patio and even pecks at our back sliding glass door. It has two bands: One reads "2011 CAP 89". I am thinking that it belongs to the Capital Area...

    Yesterday we found a pigeon hanging out by our chicken coop. It stayed in the same spot all day, so last night my wife put a little chicken feed where the pigeon was standing. This morning it is still there. I was able to pick it up this morning so that I could read the band. It's banded red...

  11. I found a pigeon or dove - now what?
    Found a young pigeon (still downy in the head, mostly feathered body) and took it indoors for a day. It was looking better after some food and water, so we took it outside to see if it wanted to leave. It stayed totally still the whole afternoon/evening we had it out, so we took it back in for...
