Hello wonderful pigeon lovers,

On my way home tonight I saw a pigeon in the middle of the street obviously having some difficulty. The wildlife rehab center opens at 9am, but until then I'd love some advice.

The pigeon was meandering in the street, made no attempt to fly, and had its head cocked to one side. the shoulder on that side also seemed hunched up. I have not examined the bird.

I've currently got it in a box with a wool cushion and an old t shirt, resting in a quiet and dark room. It immediately tucked its head into the corner and seemed to go to sleep.

From checking other places on this site I have seen that I should offer water to rehydrate (a bit of salt and sugar in it) and some thawed out frozen peas. Anything else I should know?

I'm in Austin, Texas.
