Hi I spotted an archangel pigeon today at my job when I left work at 5pm est he/she was still hanging around standing on a mat infront of another office I wasnot able to read the band and didnt want to chase him to try and catch him, i'm going back to put a box with some birdseed in to give it some food and shelter and water of course.
the local animal shelter wouldnt come get it thinking it was a racing or homing pigeon any suggestions please email me at [email protected] thanks

I have moved this post to its own thread and posted to bump it up for more exposure, I sure hope the owner is found.

PLEASE do catch it and put it inside a cage. Then post the entire band number so the owner can be located.

Here is an easy trap method:

I was not able to get the whole band number but it had AA and the last number lookes like 5. He's scared so he keeps walking of or flying I got a coouple of those paper boxes to try and get him, I am going to cut a hole in the lide and cover the whole with screen so he has lite and air do you know if there are any bands that start with AA?

I didnt try to get hime yer because I didnt have anyone to help me but I will try tonight.

Just out of curiosity why cant you put the bird in a cage?

Who said you can't put the bird in a cage? If the cage is big enough, that would be fine.
There's really no way to trace a band unless we have all of the information, so we'll just have to wait until you catch it and see what all of the info is on the band.

I did find this info on the NPA web site. Hamburg is almost 150 miles from you, so I doubt seriously that the bird FLEW from there, but there's a very good chance that someone in your area purchased or was given a bird by someone in this club. The AA on the band would make sense too. Just wait till you catch it and see what the band says for sure.
