  1. I found a pigeon or dove - now what?
    Hello all, I need some advice! Today while at work in a garden center, I had a customer race up to me with a tiny bundle wrapped in a plastic bag in her hands. It was a little Mourning Dove chick! The customer told me she'd accidentally startled the chick and it tried to fly away...straight into...

    I can't figure out his/her age...but he/she has fledged and knows how to eat seeds (and eats a lot of them). http://imgur.com/0p7lahM

    Figured one of my first posts should be interesting. Since I was raised around pigeons, doves, parrots, and most things with feathers and fur, somebody brought me a morning dove (or is it "mourning") that they found under a pine tree. The thing was almost dead and the shell was still laying by...

    I found a what I think is a mourning dove in my garage. I kicked it out but it came right back the next day. It's been coming and going but I'm not sure what to do with it. It's not causing any harm and it real friendly. Any suggestions would be great.

    Hello I am considering getting a ringneck dove and I have a few questions first. Mainly I'm worried about how loud the male coo is and how frequent? Is the coo louder than a wild mourning dove? Is it personality based and some are quieter/coo less frequently? I would probably get a single male...

    Hi, I happened upon a baby mourning dove the other afternoon. It had fallen from it's nest. Unfortunately the nest is much much much too high for me to reach, even with a ladder, so I took it in. This baby has started to get it's feathers, but they aren't unfurled yet. Looking at pictures I'd...

    My beautiful Belle was killed 2 days ago by a stray dog. The male is calling after her, can he die from mourning her? He´s not alone, one of their baby still lives with him, plus he can see my other fantails in the voliere beside theirs .... I´m trying to find a new female as soon as possible...

    So 2 nights ago, my roommates cat brought home dinner. We are not fond of this behavior, but animals are animals. His cat is a jerk and just broke the poor things wing. We thought it was dead, but it was just pretending. This morning I went out side and there it was: alert and walking around...

    I live in northwest Indiana, and today there was a mourning dove that is obviously injured. Since I own two beagle pups I found a box and lined it with some towels and have put the bird into it. It seems to be VERY swollen right under its beak with quite a lump, other than that I see no other...

    I have enjoyed watching the hatching and growth of a baby pigeon on my balcony. After 18 days the baby hatched and at 29 days he flew for the first time. I watched the dad come back diligently to care for his baby. The first day the baby flew, he returned to the nest at night to sleep. The...

    Hi! I am new here and I found this website while looking to see if I could find anything about helping injured Mourning doves, or what illness they possibly can come down with. But with no prevail. She was laying on the ground and when we got close to shoo her away she didn't fly or move to...

    I horrible, tragic accident that I really don't want to talk about as of yet, lead to the loss of my beloved Oddball, father of Koosh, mate to Luna. This is him, watching Koosh have a bath... It just happened this morning and I am still kind of in shock, and don't want to go into details...

    Hi, Yesterday I came home and found a pigeon sitting on my sidewalk. When I approached it, it walked into the bushes and sat there. I know there was a mother who had one or two babies on one of the rafters of my house, but I have no idea what this one is -- mother, baby, etc. And no idea where...
