  1. Wild or 'Feral' Pigeons
    last week I was in my front yard when a pigeon appeared a few feet away from me in my raised garden. I had noticed it because I heard the "thud" when it landed. I went to see if it was okay and it started flapping and I noticed blood under it. I grabbed a towel to catch it and in the...
  2. Wild or 'Feral' Pigeons
    Hi Today I found what seems to be an adult pigeon that seemed injured. On closer inspection it was missing feathers from wing to tail on it's left side as if it was attacked by a cat. I know the area is a feral cats spot but the people bringing food to the cats also leave food for the pigeons...

    Hi everyone, I live in central Tokyo and feed a few flocks of pigeons near my apartment. In one of the flocks I noticed a pigeon that always seemed separated from the rest of the flock (seeming a little slower and somewhat dazed). I ran into her last week at night and realized something was...

    This is our bird Arnie. We dont know if its a hen or a cock, but we just say he. He's always been an odd bird. He used to do a weird head bobbing thing and has more skin around his eyes than the others. He's always been SLIGHTLY easier to catch than other birds. Now his feathers on top of his...

    Is there anything I can do for a feral who has two patches on his neck where feathers are missing and the skin looks rough and scaly? He's a regular visitor to me. His flock are all healthily feathered, he's the only one who has started to have these patches. He eats from my hand, is there...

    So today I was patrolling one of my many flocks, this one called Broadview Flock, when I noticed a seemingly injured pigeon. I was waiting for a bus to go somewhere important, but I vowed to come back and investigate. He was still there! I fed him and caught him easily - as he didn't seem able...

    I inspect foreclosed home for a living and while I was upstairs of an empty house I noticed a very small pigeon who looks like he is missing feathers on his head sitting outside a bed room window. I watched him for a moment and walked away to take pictures of the rest of the house. I was back...

    A beautiful white racing pigeon has been hanging around our front deck for about 4 months. We called animal control the first day we saw him in hopes of returning him to his owner. They sent over some police officers with a large net to catch him; I live in a small town :). Then the bird flew...
  11. I found a pigeon or dove - now what?
    Hello, I found an adult pigeon outside the grocery store this evening. One of the employees asked if I wanted it and said that it had been there for several days and can't fly. He helped me get it into a box and I brought it home. It appears to be alert and healthy except that it's missing the...

    My fiancé got me a young, beautiful pied diamond dove and I love her dearly, but I am slightly worried about the feathers missing around her eye rings and the little feather protruding under her chin. I talked to one of my friends that has owned several birds and he said that moving a bird to...
