Do you have the bird in hand? Is it possible that it was struck by a hawk and therefore its crop has been opened up, causeing the seed to fall out. Where are you located?

Is it catchable ? can you bring it inside, put it in a box or carrier, take some pictures and post them here ?

Is the bird so weak that it is unable to eat? Does the pigeon's neck twist around?

If the bird is too weak to eat you will need to hand feed it (I'd suggest doing so ASAP). You can soak dog food in water, or take frozen peas or corn warm up some under the faucet (until thawed). Gently open the beak and place the food into the bird's mouth gently pushing it back to the throat. You'll need to feed the bird even though it may not want you to. Make sure that you feed a sufficient quantity of food so your bird doesn't starve.
