  2. I found a pigeon or dove - now what?
    Hi, I found a pigeon on our balcony. I don't think he is well, and am uncertain as to what to do. I think he is very young, as he still has a fair amount of yellow down sticking out between his gray feathers. I can't see anything visibly wrong with him, but he appears very sluggish and weak...

  4. I found a pigeon or dove - now what?
    A couple of days ago I came across a young pigeon. My first instinct was that he was injured, as he had puffed feathers and wasn't moving around much. After watching him for half an hour, I noticed his mother approach him and feed him. He was in a busy pedestrian area where people were...

    hi there, I've seen a pigeon in a small pedestrian market area the past couple of days. I think s/he might be sick. The bird's feather condition doesn't look good and s/he just sits against the wall and allows other pigeons to come right up to her without moving. I even went very close to look...

    A derisive letter to the editor appeared in a weekly paper blaming pigeons for the infiltration of bed bugs because, the writer says, the bugs are carried in their wings and get into structures/houses where they are nesting. This doesn't sound right to me but I was wondering if anyone knows...

    Hello everyone, this is my first post here. We rescued a pigeon (for the first time)that has the same symptoms as Sarahttt has described-in particular the neck twisting and the head seeming at times to be turned completely upside down while the body is standing normally. When the pigeon sleeps...

  10. I found a pigeon or dove - now what?
    I think it's a dove, but I'm not quite sure. Our neighbour found it in his back garden I think. Either way, he asked my mum if we would be able to look after it. So we now have a dove (?) on a towel on a heating pad. He found it a little into the evening, around 4-5ish, when it's starting to...
  11. I found a pigeon or dove - now what?
    Hi, my parents found a young wood pigeon the other day after it jumped from its nest (5m up in a hawthorn tree) & tried going for a walk down a busy main road. They kept it near the nest for a couple of days but no other pigeons showed up. There seem to be no signs of injury or infection (no...

    We found a young pigeon (still has some down feathers) on our driveway today - we now have it in the back garden. Not interested in water - sleeps a while, then wakes up, looks around, takes a few steps and promptly falls asleep again. Nothing seems to startle it - any ideas? We thought it...

    Hello everyone, I've been hunting for some help and can't believe I have found this forum. I have been asked to take on this pigeon by a lady who found it under her car. I would think it has been attacked as it has some of it's wing and tail feathers missing. More importantly it has an injured...

Our neighbourhood has plenty of cats and my wife was...

    Hi all, Some of you may remember I took on board some baby 'wood pigeons' a while ago (one turned out to be a feral). They were brought into the wildlife centre at which I volunteer, and I was given the task of looking after them for a couple of days. Despite only having them for a few brief...

    Hi all, I've got a bit of an odd situation which I need some advice on. I volunteer at a local wildlife rescue centre, and recently took home a couple of suspected wood pigeon squabs for regular hand feeding. I work at home, so it's not a problem feeding them regularly. However, one of the...
