mourning dove

  1. Sick or Injured Pigeon and Dove Discussions
    We found an abandoned mourning dove. The nest was blown away and the squab lay helpless atop our car. This was about 10 days ago, and it responded to our feeding and is feathering out nicely. When we first got it, the beak seemed normal. It can't seem to completely close it's beak now, however...

    Hi everyone, Background: I have a fledgling mourning dove. His nest was destroyed and I tried to reunite him with the mama bird with no luck. Due to the location at the time I had no option other than let him die outside (he was much smaller then) or try to rehab him myself. I have been feeding...

    5 days ago my mother in laws cat went outside, and came back inside with a young mourning dove. I'm not sure the exact age, but it's not large enough or feathered enough to be a fledgling. The wings are feathered but beneath them baby still has down, and has many pin feathers on its neck and...

    Our juvenile white feral, "Serenity" has been sharing a cage with "Nina", a rescued collared dove (passed to Cynthia by the vet surgery, where someone described her/him as a 'baby pigeon' :) ). Young pigeons really seem to take to CDs as companions, and follow them around (and doubtless learn...

    I had what I first thought to be a Mourning Dove arrive last Thursday evening while I was taking calls and birds for my rehabber friend. It had a nasty wing injury and though it looked somewhat like a Mourning Dove, I knew it wasn't. Turns out it was a Common Ground Dove and was a most...

Once I got the chance to look them over I noticed that their tail feathers are damaged. She had them in a very small cage and it this damaged the feathers. She was...

    I am a volunteer foster parent at my local Humane Society. About six weeks ago a woman brought in a pigeon that she said she hit with her car. Since the selter is set up for dogs and cats, I brought the pigeon home. It had lost all of its tail feathers and there was some blood but its wings...

    Hi Folks, I've been using the camper shell on my old truck to feed the neighborhood birds. They love it 'cause it's right underneath a Japanese Plum Tree and they can swoop in and out of the branches and down to the seed just under the branches. There are finches, sparrows, mourning doves that...
