Dawn, original formula, is the best thing to use. It probably won't come off with one bath. It may take many over the course of many days. Because the feathers are in the condition they are, the pigeon will not be able to keep warm and will need to be kept inside with a heating pad set on the low setting.

Several years ago, I had a conversation with another rehabber about what she uses on a bird in the condition as your rescue. She told me she puts peanut butter on the grease and then washes that off with Dawn. I haven't had need to try it since she shared that with me but I don't think it would hurt to try.
