Just heard on the news that dozens of sick/dying pigeons have turned up in Solvang and north to Atascadero and Templeton and up to the Bay Area. Apparently the dead banded tail pigeons have trichomonas that they caught from rock pigeons. They have also found an owl that died from eating a dead pigeon. Very sad. Just wanted to give people in the area a heads up (I live in Atascadero and have two pet pigeons).
