I have a bird that has been visiting my feeder daily for the last week.
It is banded and the people I contacted said they were not able to trace the numbers.

BAND:

IPB R 2010 14499

If I can't locate the owner, I thought maybe someone else may want it? I'm afraid a hawk or somethings else may kill it.

Its mostly white, but has some gray around the collar area.
I am located just south of Columbus, Ohio.

Please do keep the bird contained, because it is a sitting duck out there for a hawk attack. Pigeons are safer in numbers. It is domestic and lost, maybe sick, and used to being housed and fed. It will not do well outside.

Who did you talk to in regards to the band info? Did you contact Foy's pigeon supplies?

While looking for owner or new home, contain the bird in an animal carrier, crate or cage. Be sure it has access to wild bird seed or pigeon seed and clean water. The bird cannot be adopted out or returned to its owner if flying free.

You can post in our adoption section. You should also find local flyers as they may know who the bird belongs to, or can find him a home.
