Please could you give the woodpigeon some brown wholemeal bread dipped in water. Just very small pieces rolled up in to a ball and place at the very back of the birds throat.

You could defrost some frozen peas or some sweetcorn and give about 20 every four hours

Could you possibly take the bird to the 'Three Owls Sanctuary' Wolstenhome Fold, NORDEN, Rochdale, Lancs. OL11 5UD.

Their phone number is 01706 659090.

PLease phone them. They will beable to help the bird.
Thank you for caring. Jayne

As Jayne has said the Three Owls Sanctuary is the very best place for it, there it will mix with other wood pigeons and can be released with them as a mini flock. I have never been there, but I understand that those that are releasable are allowed to go, or to stay...the choice is theirs.

As a precaution, could you also examine the inside of its mouth, which should be clear and pink, and also check its body very carefully for possible injuries .


If you see its parents visiting the garden then if you can let them feed the baby, as long as they are all safe from predators.

I too recommend The Three Owls. I took a woodie there a couple of weeks ago. I was shown around the sanctuary and was amazed at the number and variety of birds they have there. Indeed, if you have children take them along too. It is well worth a visit in its own right, I thoroughly enjoyed my visit there.
