ahh this morning i looked out and saw one of the feeding ferals flopping around on the grass.He was trying to fly but couldnt take off.we think he got smacked by a car but we are not sure.I started getting dressed to go out and get him before my cat did.before i had a chance a BIG hawk flew in and grabbed him and took him near the neighbors foundation and laid on top of the pigeon.the hawk got spooked,and flew off to a tree and the pidge scooted under a bush.we caught him and hes in a box.he seems to be a male based solely on his huge feet and beak.He is in extreme distress with 2 broken legs.in the last few hours the shock seems to have wore off.I didnt think hed live more then a few hours.now im wondering what to do to help him?????????

Poor thing, I can't offer any advice except to keep him warm and quiet. At least he didn't have to die being eaten by a hawk and now he is warm and safe. If he doesn't have any internal injuries he could still live. I don't know, I'm sure others will respond, I'm so glad you helped him. He looks young in the picture. min

the bird in the pic is my old precious baby Jerry.The one I found is like a big daddy pidge.I am trying to reach a sanctuary for birds to see if they take pidge.He is now protected from anymore predators and accidents but :( still a very unhappy guy.

update

so he has been brought to the clinic.he is in fantastic hands and was being treated before i left the building.we will get together when his rehab is finished and i will release him with his original flock if all goes as planned.The hawk left several shallow punture wounds but could have been MUCH worse.
