I think B.B. has a parasite...lice, maybe
Under both of his wings, he is missing feathers. I noticed his excessive preening, and figured he wanted a bath. After the bath, he preened more than normal. Later, he stretched one wing, and I saw his skin and it’s very red. I held him and inspected...

I'm from Kyiv, Ukraine. About 2 weeks ago we found a pigeon on the ground floor near elevator in our multi-apartment house. It was looking sick staring into one spot sitting in the corner and had many watery green stools around, so we put on some gloves and respirators and took him upstairs...
I just got a call about a weak sick feral pigeon , then I got a call back that the pigeon had died. The pigeon was described as having red scaly skin under the feathers any idea what she was suffering from?
