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.
I would keep the pigeon untill he has molted out and can fly again..it may take awhile. bathing over and over again can be stressful ..esp for a feral hatch bird. I would just wait and then he will be well fed for months before being on the street again.
