  1. I found a pigeon or dove - now what?
    Hi everyone, On the cycling/bus route from Cambridge, UK to St Ives in Cambridgeshire, we found a pigeon with a possible broken wing and a wound on its head, very likely by impact with a bus. We brought it home and it's now safe in a box. We have no idea what to do, anyone in Cambridge or...

    Hi there. I've had an adult wild pigeon taking refuge in my back garden for the last 3 days. I'm guessing it was attacked by a cat as the large feathers on it's left wing have been torn off. It cannot fly, but is able to flap both of it's wings. I found it when I went out to water the garden...

  5. I found a pigeon or dove - now what?
    Hello, My family and I have been caring for an injured wild dove unable to fly for two and a half weeks now. We want him to regain flight and freedom, so we have not tried to tame him or give him reason to lose his fear of humans. We have not lost hope, but it has been two weeks with no...

    My partner and I found this young pigeon/morning dove outside, last night. We took them in because it looked like the mother or mate was trying desperately to get to it, and did not want the second bird to get injured as well by this. We expected the one we took in to die rather quickly, but as...

    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...

    Hi guys, I came here in the hope of finding some assistance. About three days ago we found a pigeon loitering around the house by the pool and it seems to have a broken right wing. It tried to fly when being approached, but it doesn't seem to be able to go higher than a meter for about a second...

    Yesterday we found a pigeon on the road which had just been hit by a car. It had blood coming from its eye and beak and we took it home with us, expecting it to die within the hour. However, it seemed to recover very well. It can see from both eyes and is alert. It ate some peas overnight and...

    Came home and saw a pigeon sitting by my front stoop and it would not move that much. Sort of scurry away. I gave it some bread but it didn't eat. My husband later picked it up and put it in a box in our enclosed porch. He said the wing looks broken. Please don't tell me to take it to...
  12. I found a pigeon or dove - now what?
    Found this cute little guy (or girl) running across the street. Witnessed sick people actually trying to hit him. Couldn't leave him there to die. Captured him, and now I have him in a box at home. Right wing might be broken, as it looks slightly droopy, and he is unable to fly. Called so...

  15. I found a pigeon or dove - now what?
    I've found a young (still has some downy feathers) pigeon infront of my house (I live on a side road). It appears to have a damaged right wing, as it is drooping and the pigeon did not fly off, dispite it opening its wings when I caught it. I haven't examined the pigeon yet as I did not want to...

    Hi, I have a dove that has been coming to my deck for six years. He will hang around all day and then fly back to his sleeping place at night. He has a partner dove too. Last night he was on the deck visibly injured. He was hobbling, his left wing looked damaged with tufts and blood. He was...

    I found a pigeon that I believe was shot in the wing with some sort of an airsoft gun, the back of the wing is a little bruised. It's been a couple of days now and it seems to be doing fine, I'm just not sure if it will die from infection. What should I do?

    So, I have now bitten off more than I can chew. I rescued an injured Pigeon, that appears to have been shot by some brat with a BB Gun. Closer inspection has revealed that at least 1/2 of the right wing has been cleanly broken. It looks like, if you chopped your hand off at the upper knuckles...
