    Hello, I found a pigeon on my way home yesterday. It's large and fairly active, but is displaying head-bobbing/twitching behavior which looks like PMV. Further, one of his feet has a thin strand wrapped around. The foot appears to have already lost a toe (I'm not sure if this was recent) and...
