so today I found a pigeon with some kind of brown sticky stuff all over him and i gues it was heavy on his feathers so he could barley fly. i was able to catch him and bring him home. i tried to give him a bath but it wont come out. I dont know what it is mabey some kind of oil or syrup but i bought some dawn soap after hearing about it bieng used to wash oil out of birds at the oil spill in the gulf of Mexico so i bought some but i wanted to hear from someone more experianced than me before i try anything. right now Noah is keeping him company and he seems to be pretty healthy other than the fact that he is covered in some brown stuff, so i would like to realease him once he is all clean.

ok so yesterday i bathed him with dawn and warm water and it was difficult but i got most of the oil out i believe it was motor oil or bycicle grease god only knows how it got all over his feathers but after the bath i put him in a room gave him some food and water and put him under an infared low power heat lamp and in the morning he was actualy flying (trying to get Away from me because the past day and a half have been very stressfull and scary for him) but i gave him another because he still had little patches of oil on his feathers. right now hes drying off.
