Hi there!

I'm extremely new to bird keeping and seem to have been adopted by what I think is a pigeon.(it has a tag on its ankle) It appeared on my bedroom window sill over a week ago and hasn't left.
I originally borrowed a budgie cage from a friend in order to bring the bird in for safety. It came in quite happily and seemed settled. I fed and watered it for a couple of days thinking it was just having a rest. Having read some forums I believe they could be resting. I let it go after a couple days and it flew away. When I got home that evening it was sat again on my window sill. I brought it in again and googled the code on its tag. I have left messages with the club it is from and nobody has come back to me. So it seems I now have a pet pigeon/dove who is called Montie and lives in a budgie cage over night. He flies off each morning and comes back and sits on my window sill until I bring him in again!! He is very sweet and seems to be warming to becoming handled. If you can see my profile picture, I would be grateful if anybody can identify his breed. My question is- how do I keep a pet pigeon? Mainly, what should I feed him and how? I've been holding off getting him a bigger cage incase he doesn't stay but it's looking like I'm his now :) Thank you in advance for your advice.
