    Hi everyone, I am currently caring for a wood pigeon. I picked 'him' up from the side of the road, I was driving and saw something rolling around.

    Hi all, I've found a young wood pigeon in my garden. Initially, I thought it was injured, but now I have realised it is just a youngster. The wood pigeon isn't flying.

Three weeks ago I took in some wood pigeon squabs and it's been pretty smooth sailing; they weren't visibly sick or injured when I brought them in and they've been doing great eating and drinking and are now weaned.
