THis classic looking grey pigeon just showed up on our house last week and hangs around on the roof like he belongs here. he has a leg band that all i could see,had the date 2007 and USA printed on it. we are curious why is it here and staying? we have no pigeon coups in the neighborhood that I know of and never saw him before. what do they like to eat?

Thank you for your care and concern over this bird.

It is a lost racing/homing pigeon born in 2007 and needs to be caught and returned to its owner.

Please use this link to make an easy trap:

Please get the complete band information and post it here and we will try to find the info on the owner.

Do you have a carrier or a cage you can keep the bird in, and keep it out of drafts and rain and away from predators?

Pigeons are seed and grain eaters and will eat a pigeon seed or wild bird seed (temporarily) and water, he is domestic and not able to forage for himself.

Thank you again.

well,.walmart isn,t too far away,.get some kaytee wild bird food,or hop on down to auburn to dels farm supply-off west valley hiway,west of super mall, and get some pigeon food and grit..all this works well,...does someone own him??,most likely,the band tells to whom he supposed to belong,-some group or club in everett,--but i do not uphold to people who release for sport/or a fast dinner for predatory animals,..he could be just resting and getting his new bearings for home,,he does need protection from cats,hawks,etc,..but i know you will not be able to protect him much,just offer food and water,and use binoculars to view leg band,-if you want,..he may have just found a new home,,try to protect him,,hard to say how long he,ll stay,..sincerely james waller [email protected]
