    I am a pile of nerves right now and can't stop crying. Fast background (sorry for my english): - live in a kinda like cul-de-sac zone, closed off with tall buildings ( I'm on the 6th floor, which is the highest); - not too long ago eggs hatched on several of the ledges, parents taking care of...
  2. I found a pigeon or dove - now what?
    Hi everyone, I think this is my first post here, but I have found it a very helpful resource for the now three sick or injured pigeons I've had in my home in the past 8 months - thank you. As of Sunday night, I have my third resident pigeon. She is young - I am guessing somewhere between 3-5...
  3. Wild or 'Feral' Pigeons
    Hey! This is November-X-Scourge, if you remember me. I've still been rescuing pigeons all the time. My friend found a squabby in the garbage, and raised him (using this forum). He's completely tame. His name is Cooper. His company is lovely, but it's his time to be free. How should I prep him to...

    Hi all, I'm rehabbing a bird (Greybird) who suffered pretty severe breaks to both wings but is healing in such a way that he may be releasable. On the advice of my vet (who has a lot of experience with pigeon rehab) I kept him in a dog kennel (about 3 feet by 2 feet by 2 feet; lxwxh) for 1 week...
  5. I found a pigeon or dove - now what?
    Hello, I was on my way home when I was walking under a bridge and noticed a young pigeon on top of a car's hood, flapping its wings, trying to climb the windshield to get back up to its nest, which must have been about 15 feet above, on one of the beams on the underside of the bridge. Just about...
  6. Non Pigeon and Dove Bird Emergencies
    Hi all, A friend of mine told me that her dog attacked a sparrow. She brought the sparrow to the emergency vet, who confirmed that the sparrow had no puncture wounds, but that the sparrow did have a dislocated shoulder and thus could not yet be released. My friend brought me the sparrow. When...

    After the Fourth of July parade in my town, I found a pigeon "hiding" in a corner on the sidewalk by the door of a closed business in a parking lot on the parade path. I thought it was odd it would just stand there alone, so I got closer and it did nothing but back into the corner. I walked up...
  8. I found a pigeon or dove - now what?
    I found a pigeon that was limping around on the ground today while at work. I approached it, to see if it could fly and realized that it did not have the ability as it limped away. I sat down on the ground and it slowly came towards me. I picked it up with very little resistance and placed it...
  9. I found a pigeon or dove - now what?
    Hello! Last night a friend of mine found two fledgling pigeons (around 3 wks old?), in a parking lot near her home in downtown Portland, OR. They are doing well and seem healthy (despite the broken leg). Neither one of us have been able to find a place willing to care for them, and we are...

  11. I found a pigeon or dove - now what?
    I found an injured adult pigeon while walking my dog yesterday. He went for it, I stopped him and then secured the bird. It's in a box, on a pile of paper towels that I've been rotating as they get soiled, I've been giving him/her the rehydration solution, I don't have peas, but this morning I...

    I have rescued many birds over the years, mostly Pigeons and other unprotected species and brought them in to Rehabbing facilities (Chicago area) , thinking they would receive medical treatment, rehabilitation and be released if possible, or cared for if not releasable. A couple of rehabbers...

    Greetings, A family member of mine recently died and left me a flock of pigeons with no care instructions or health information about the birds. I bought a book and have been caring for the birds and monitoring their health until I decide what I can do with them. Physically, the birds appear...
  15. I found a pigeon or dove - now what?
    Hey Pigeon Talkers, I came across a pigeon at an airsoft range about 3 weeks ago. It appeared to be without parents and the club president said it had been there for a few days by itself. We dropped in to see our friend who raises pigeons, who estimated it to be about 2-3 weeks old and gave us...

    I rescued Pepper (a nestling mourning dove) back in April and now wonder if it's safe to release him this late in the summer. I live in Fort Worth, Texas, so the weather should be mild for a while. I would have realeased him earlier, but he/she had knocked out some tail feathers in a fright...

    Hi, I saw a pigeon get run over by a car, and stopped to get it. Once home, after calming down in a dark box, it was walking around, eating, and drinking - but unable to fly. It appeared that one of it's wings was injured. I attempted to tape the wing with special tape, but he kept loosening...

    So.. a few weeks ago (I don't remember how many exactly) my friend told me he found an injured pigeon in the road.. the bird wasn't really moving and sort of just sat there, it didn't even move to go to the bathroom, was just sitting in its own waste. He took it home and put it in a box lined...

    Dear members, I'm posting from Singapore. Recently I rescued a baby pigeon from the base of our MRT pillar about two months back as I feared it could be killed by cats in the vicinity. I brought it up with white/brown porridge, budgie millets and dried mealworms and it is now a fully grown...
