  1. I found a pigeon or dove - now what?
    Hello Everyone! Yesterday my cousin contacted me about a pair of baby pigeons. Their nest got blown out of the tree and the mother was seen abandoning the nest with a limp. This was in Provo, Utah. The Rehabilitation Center there wouldn't take them. My cousin will be dropping the pigeons off...

    I had a young homer that reverted back to wild. This 2 month old homer had been tame. Ate peanuts out of my hand. Then one day he wouldn't eat peanuts from me. Next day he avoided me. I fly them most evenings. He come in last. Then he come in alone just before dark. Finally he didn't go to...
  3. Wild or 'Feral' Pigeons
    Hi there! Last night I was out on my balcony when I saw a pigeon flapping wildly and descending from the sky in a spiral. At first I thought it was looking for a place to land, but then it came down hitting some leaves on a tree. A car was blocking my view from that point, so I'm not sure what...

    Hi, I live on the Pacific Coast of Colombia, yesterday I found a wild grey dove on the street, shaking and not flying, I brought her to my house (outside, cause I have a cat, but where I am keeping her it is predator free). I cant see any injury at all, but if she tries to fly she crashes down...

    Hello! Someone please, I need an urgent advice. I found a common wood pigeon unable to fly, no apparent injuries. The vet will examine her to see what is wrong, but I need help with the feeding! She is with me since last Friday, and since then I browsed and watched a lot of videos on how to hand...
  6. Wild or 'Feral' Pigeons
    Hello, I spotted a wild (no tag or markers) pigeon curled up near my front gate, clearly injured as he was very approachable. I've gently captured him and he's now sat in a box with a towel over it, near the radiator to keep warm. He's very still, but alert, and when he did try to move, it...

    Hey all, Recently, for the last 4 or 5 days, this pigeon has been visiting my balcony here. I've been putting some small portions of seed for it to eat and putting more when it finishes all of it. Besides eating, it likes to stay on the wall looking out and stuff. Sometimes it "sits" or lays...

    I saw a dove with an injured lower beak, such that it may not be attached on one side. It was struggling to drink water from the fountain. I very much would like to help this bird and am hoping for advice. I can't be sure it will come back tomorrow, but I am hopeful. The poor thing has a...

    My brother came home for his lunch break today(he works on a ranch five minutes from our house) and was holding a dove. He said the dove had flown into the side of a building. The dove, who I call Turtle, is currently resting in a bird cage that I had on hand. I've never had a bird before, and...

We live in rural Leicestershire (UK), and my other half rescued a woodpigeon from a cat three days ago. He stopped the car a short distance from home as he noticed a scuffle going on with...

    Hello! My friends dog got a hold of a mourning dove and ripped out all the tail feathers. Some were already growing back, so I suspected he was molting prior to being captured. I have had him/her (leaning more towards he) since October 10th. Today though, I noticed that he has major bald...
  15. Pet Pigeons And Doves
    I got a pair of blue ground doves 3 days ago. USPS delayed them to 3 days, and the male died ~15-20 minutes after unboxing. (male should be reshipped in a week...) The remaining female is absolutely terrified. Just looking at her from 6+ feet away will make her pace the corner or sometimes fly...

    Hi I'm wondering if its normal for our resident 5 adults+2 babies pigeons to roost all day where they live? Why would 1 pigeon sleep outside and all others sleep inside roof? Would they hang around ALL DAY in the HOPES of getting peanut crumbs? I'm trying to understand them to better find a...

    Hail, all. For those of you who recall Lady B., hello once again. A new bird has sorta tumbled my way. It lived through the night and day and night again. It was found flapping in the street with a truck heading for it, which would surely have run it over. From what I've been able to find, this...
