    I live in Tucson, Arizona, USA. Our house is about 20 miles west of Tucson, in a natural desert location. One day, last May, a white pigeon appeared in the dead mesquite tree that stands in our yard. It seemed to be exhausted, and remained perched in the same place all day. We left seed out for...

    Here's a pic of the baby pigeon that arrived today sans feathers .. no real wounds or anything, so we are guessing that rodents may have been the culprits. S/he is certainly curious about my very messy work area at the computer. http://www.rims.net/Baby2.jpg Terry Whatley

    Our bird is about one years old, he is grey with purple and green highlights, a beautiful bird to look at but he keeps losing alot a feathers. He never has a bald spot and I haven't noticed any plucking so why are they falling out. He is an indoor bird, its not really hot in here. We had air...

    My husband just called me and told me he was on the coop. He caught him and read the band to me...it was my "boyfriend". Five days later, escaped from the Dogs and those brutal murders, managed to find his way to the new house...everything! OMG...This is a true miracle. I'm on my way home!

    I came home to find mostly white feathers all over the yard. I look up and see one my rescue dogs running right through the door to my coop...he had torn the wire mesh off the screen door...that's right...the "predator proof" coop I had. My own dogs have never bothered my birds. I've had...

    I wrote a couple of weeks ago about Pidgie who had fallen out of his nest. (Many of you wrote back and gave me hope.) He wasn't tiny, had most of his feathers but still had some pin feathers (?) and had a messed up nose, and couldn't fly yet. We made him a condo in the tree we think he fell from...

    I found a wonderful bird that I would describe as a pigeon or morning dove. He coos and has white feathers with a mottled brown over his head, neck and tail. He is people friendly. His tag reads IF 2002 FOYS 12796. I live in Central Florida. Does this sound familiar to anyone? Can anyone...

    Hi all, I live in the city and our building's back stairwell has a baby/teenage pigeon living there (until this week he had baby-hair -- pin-feathers on his head). His sibling already left, but this guy won't leave. My neighbor did the test to see if his wings were ok, and he flaps them like he...

    I've found two babies about a month ago. I've been feeding them baby bird food but I'm not sure how old they are. They're maybe 3/4ths the size of an adult bird but cannot fly. It took them a while, but now they have grown quite attatched to me as they come to me when I come outside to my...

    I need some help please. I have been feeding our baby fantail for 1 week now and I thought it was doing ok but tonight it seems very sluggish and tired. It is taking food and water although we have to put it into its beak. It seems very top heavy and cannot stand properly. Is this natural or...

    Hello again, Simon's neck feathers finally filled back in. I was starting to get nervous, seemed to take a while. now I.m noticing more small down like feathers in the bottom of his cage again. not a whole lot just a few. Is he starting to molt in another area now? And is this normal? Thanks Karen

    Hi All, I posted awhile back about Pige getting very dirty. Well, he is still a dirty bird. He has been rousting in the ceiling of my shop in the most filthy spot he could find. Last week I made him a box but he has no interest in it other than to eat. I just climbed up to the filthy spot to...

    I have rescued, raised and released many wild birds, among them, feral pigeons. I have had many bond to me as mom, but have encouraged them to leave and eventually have. I live in Israel, not in the city. I rescued Hercules, a feral pigeon (we think he was a day old). He bonded to me as mom...

    I've been feeding city pigeons and thier babies under my balcony for a few weeks now. All of a sudden, they keep knocking over the bowl after I put the food out. Is it just out of clumsiness or are they perhaps mad at something? I did have to move thier nest, but I replaced it with a better...

    Dear members, I am sorry this is not pigeon related, but I know there are many of us that also love poultry. I came upon this post on the poultry site I visit daily. These poor hens desperately need help...if there is anyone here near this place in Florida???? Sending positive thoughts out...

    Hi Everyone, As posted previously, I released Inky Dinky, a male feral, on Superbowl Sunday. He left for a couple of hours and then returned to take up permanent residence in the backyard. I certainly didn't mind this, but since we have a hawk that visits about once a week, I was worried that...
