Hi, new here. We recently found a pigeon with taped wings. Noticed it when we were having coffee at our 19th floor balcony... It kept walking towards us, following us around. Now it's just asleep.

We were wondering whether or not we should take off the tape so it can be free or fly as it pleases? We aren't really sure. Help pls, thank you

Does he have any rings on? The person that taped the wings must be closeby. Surely the owner of a pigeon won't do that?

Hi, welcome to PT and thanks for helping him.

Could you please post a pic of the bird?

What do you mean about taped wings? Do you think that somebody fixed an injured wing or put a bandage on a wound? Does it look like a bandaging tape?

Or do you think about a stupid and cruel "joke" (well, I know, joke is not the good word...) ? Unfortunately that happened even in Italy. Here you can see some pics of a pigeon with taped wings (you could compare them with your bird):


Fortunately the pigeon was rescued by volunteers of Enpa, an Italian animal association.

Or maybe a pigeon owner taped his wings to avoid him to fly ?? There are people who also clip the wing feathers. Does the bird have a ring?

Leave him available a bowl filled with a pigeon/dove mixture. You could also add dried legumes (mung beans, small lentils and split peas), the ones for humans. How are his poops? Could you please post a pic?
Is he drinking? You could dip his beak (not over the nostrils) into a small water bowl, this way he will understand that the bowl contains water.

When I rescue a new bird I also always check his mouth/throat with a flashlight. Pay attention to any whitish or yellowish growths and to any bad smell.


Keep us updated.

Hi everyone, I appreciate your replies. We have a clean bowl of water for it and we feed it too. We're still trying to get it to trust us so we can hold it and take the tape off. We think the tape's there so it can't fly away, just not sure how it ended up on our balcony because we live in the 19th floor.

It's alert and apparently has no injuries. It drinks and eats well too

Wait till night with low light or not any. Then he will not try to fly. You will be able to walk up to where he is and pick him up.
