Didn't ask there was more than 1,when I found out I ran over and took them (not all squeakers) this 1 seems the sooner it finds a home the better. Stroudsburg area.(rte 80). And I don't keep ferals. I'm evaluating the others. The birds were treated ok.

Good thing you're not closer. I love blacks, and I DO keep ferals, amongst others. Poor baby.

My assumption would be that the bird came in very young and is now imprinted,(domesticated)and could not survive on it's own. It definitely appears to be feral,but I'm not 100% sure, the bird is young.Got it.

Adoption on hold he droops his left wing sometimes,but his droppings seem ok. Hoping it wasn't broken and healed,but is possible. I will have to keep an eye on him for a little while, he is on antibiotic so I will post update when he is ready. Sorry!!

I think you need to find the poor bird a ride with someone that's traveling north for the Holiday's. There's probably some kind sould on Craig's List, that would give a birdy a ride.

Someone else wanted him, I was within forty or so miles out of 200 miles of thier home but they couldn't meet (car problem). I wanted to meet the person I was going to give him to, as people shoot or train thier dogs with pigeons out here and think nothing of it. They then wanted me to ship him. Jay does seem like a nice place for "sanctuary" for him,nice birds Jay. He is in no way in danger or being mistreated now,I wormed him yesterday,again in 9 days for follow up. I just have to decide who,no offense to anyone.

That's sweet of you Lokota. Yes, I love my birds, and spend lots of time with them. It was because of 6 little feral babies that we recued, that the loft was built. Since then many have been added. But no offense taken M Kurps. I just offered to help as I know he needs placement. And black birds are my favorite. He is a beautiful little thing, and I just want him to have a good home. So what ever you decide, I'm sure you will choose what is best for him. And I would be the same if I had to place a bird with someone. I think it's nice that you don't want to just give him to anyone. Shows you care. Keep us updated.
