    We found a Rock Dove yesterday with a broken wing in a ditch near our home. It was easy to catch, bright eyes, and alert. Upon closer inspection the wing also is wounded also. Not a punture wound, Nor terribly scabby just dirty. I cleaned it with a week solution of water and iodine. We used a...
