Is this a white pigeon by any chance? If those numbers are truly the only info on the band, then it can't be traced. We may need to try to find a home for it.I have contained him in a pet carrier since last night. Have fed and watered him then tried to let him out this am. he allows me to pick him up and pet him so i am sure the only numbers on the band are 613 or 618. last number is slightly covered. those numbers appear on the green portion of the band. the white part of the band does not have numbers.
OK. Tell us where you are if you don't mind. We have a couple of members in MASS and maybe they're close by and can help out.No his coloring is light grey with white tail feathers and two black bands across his back tail feathers. He coo's when you pet him. I'm sure someone must be missing him. I cant have birds. have mini aussies and cats. thanks for your response.
yes its only about 50 minutes from me. and yes i am surrounded by ocean. I ahve talked to 2 other people who have found banded birds in their yard. crows are awful here and have targeted those pigeons. wont let this one out until I find a worthy home. just need to make sure I am taking care of him correctly.Man, you're almost in the ocean!! LOL
The only member I can think of right off is in Lowell, MA. I'll send a PM and see if they can help at all. Do you ever go in that direction?
As long as he's in a safe place with some feed and water, he should be fine.yes its only about 50 minutes from me. and yes i am surrounded by ocean.

Thank you for offering to take the bird. Maybe you can put it up for adoption here?hi i'm jodi swenson, i'm a wildlife rehabilitator in gloucester, you can call if you would like, i know there are some pigeon keepers in gloucester, of course i can't remember who they are at the moment, but i'll see what i can find, in the mean time he can come here and i can care for him and check him over for injuries until we find a place for him (even though i'm technically full).
he might not like the rehab room i have 2 young bratty crows, lol
leave me a message, i never answer that line and i will call you back
