This feral baby was found on the 2nd day of May; sitting on the ground, starved, severely underweight (155 g) and malnourished. She has several symptoms of PMV (trembling head, twisted neck, stargazing, walking backwards). Unable to eat and drink on her own. She is on medication (Amoxycillin, Neurobion Forte). Not certain about her age, but has started to coo for a week only. Before that she was absolutely silent. Today in the morning she weighed 238 g. This is our second rescue.

Yesterday we noticed these marks (wounds or stain of blood or something beyond our knowledge) under her right wing. There are no such marks under her left wing. She flaps a lot and flies only a negligible distance.

What are these marks and how should we go about them?

If the bird was attacked he may need antibiotics such as amoxicillin. Thank you for helping him.

Are you referring to the yellow/creamy growths? Looks like a bit of pox, although pigeons get pox mostly on the featherless parts of their body like around the eyes and beak.

The blood can be from a blood feather. New feathers have a bit of blood circulating in the shaft of the feather, so if this breaks there will be a bit of bleeding.
