    I came across this video on youtube and I wondered, does that sort of thing really happen? Can pigeons really become that intoxicated on rotten fruit that they are actually unable to fly?
  4. I found a pigeon or dove - now what?
    (In UK) recently discovered we have baby wood pigeons nesting in our tree in back garden. Have seen mum on nest. Problem is we never knew pigeons were nesting in this tree! The tree has been pruned at the front and on discovery the nest has been left well alone since. But now the nest is exposed...

    Let's talk about wooden eggs. The common agreement seems to be that mom and dad will sit on the eggs for some time before eventually giving up. But here is a case where mom and dad have been sitting on these wooden eggs for well over a month, and have barely shown a hint of intention with...

    hello everybody, I wanted to hear your thoughts on something, though I can't provide much info myself. Last night I found a wood pigeon in my street (as I was coming home from work). He looked perfectly normal, no puffy feathers or greasy at all like most sick pigeons. The only thing I...

    Someone gave me a lovely Manzanita branch that would be perfect as a perch to hang off of my ceiling for my pigeon. I need to know if Manzanita wood is toxic for pigeons or not. Does anyone know about this? Thank you!
  8. Wild or 'Feral' Pigeons
    Hi everyone, I'm very new here and made an account to ask for some help. About half an hour ago while walking my dog at a local park, I saw a flock of crows attacking a wood pigeon - after a few moments I realized that it could not fly away even if it wanted to, so I ran over and scared the...
  9. Loft Designs
    Hi all, Looks like I'm finally coming around to making a pigeon loft for my future birds. I have quite a few sheets of MDF in my garden. Can I use this to make the loft and then apply a coat of water proofing? I also have two small sheets of external wood which I can use to make the roof...

    Hello! This is my first post on this forum, I was hoping some people here may be able to clear up some questions for me that I couldn't find answers to on google. So, I acquired a pair of ringneck doves in July. They've started mating and the allegedly 'female' dove is sitting in her nest most...

    A juvenile wood pigeon was brought in to the pub where I work about 5 days ago and stayed in one place in the garden for 3 days. It has lost half of its tail feathers probably to a cat or fox and doesn't seem to be able to fly. Other than that it seems alert and healthy. I was going to take it...

    I have two rescued pigeons at the moment. A city pigeon showed up in my front garden after a stormy night, very thin, unable to fly more than a few feet off the ground. The vet said he was healthy and might need a little help feeding. He has refused to eat on his own. Three weeks later (a...

    Hi All, Last night the cat turned up at the back door with a baby wood pigeon,which I bought in and settled in a box in the spare room, expecting to find the little mite to have popped his clogs in the night. Well this morning found him alive and well, making little wheezing noises - assuming...

    Hi there, I was walking my dog last evening and after coming across several foxes and a eager looking cat across the street, I found what appears to be a young wood pigeon unable to fly. I quite easily caught it and took it home. It was quite docile but did seem to have enough strength to...
