  1. I found a pigeon or dove - now what?
    I found a young pigeon by the side of the road yesterday evening, tired and unable to fly. Have some experience with birds so brought it home; it wasn't eating or drinking on its own after giving it time to warm up, so I force fed it 'pellets' made of mashed wild bird seed, bread, and water and...

    Hi, Several months ago, some feral pigeons set up nest in a potted plant on my windowsill. Since then, they've raised a few healthy young and all has seemed well.
