  1. I found a pigeon or dove - now what?
    Yesterday and today around noon, a mourning dove that is noticeably limping (possibly broken leg?) has been appearing in my frontyard feeding on birdseed I leave out for the mourning doves. It only appears on its own when no other doves are feeding, and is still capable of flight. Any...
  2. I found a pigeon or dove - now what?
    Hi, I'm new to this site, as I wasn't sure where else to go for help on this matter. I found an injured Mourning Dove outside my house yesterday.

    I am a wildlife rehabber and don't have a lot of experience with adult injuries. I received a morning dove in two days ago. History that I received was that the dove showed up on someone's porch and had been there a couple of days with a bruised wing and missing all but one tail feather. I...

    I live in Bozeman, MT and right now the average high temperature for the whole week is below 10 degrees Fahrenheit. I found a mourning dove earlier this evening struggling to cross a very busy road on foot. I watched as it attempted to fly several times but it couldn't. My guess is that because...

    Hey, 4 days ago a beautiful white dove flew into our backyard of our flat (Dunedin, New Zealand). He has kept coming back and we feed him wild bird seed, last night he slept in our living room.

    There is a Dove in my backyard and it seems to be eating and his crop is way too full. He keeps kind of pawing at his mouth and stretching his neck out. I took a video of him. I just need somebody to tell me what I should do.

    Hi, I have a dove that I need your help with. One of my neighbors found it after it almost got hit by a car. It looks to be an older dove (not sure how old but it is at age to feed itself).

    I came home today and found a cat outside my house, and when I walked up it was making strange growling sounds. After it left, I went to open the door, and I noticed a little pigeon hiding in the corner. It looked like the cat wounded the pigeon's wing and trapped it in the corner, and was...
