Hello.

Approximately two month ago I found a young wood pigeon being attacked by a cat at my yard. It (sex unknown) still had some yellow down feathers and a little bald around his bill and couldn't fly yet. I figure he was about three weeks old. I brought him home and feed him baby bird food until he started eating pigeon food on his own (accompanied by my feral pigeon pet). I was reluctant to release it though, its parents seemed to disappear (and my yard isn't safe place for any animal), so it stayed at my home.
Yesterday it flew through a window and I don't know if it can fend for itself in liberty. What chances are for it to survive or can it get back?

He didn't have his parents or flock to teach him how to survive on his own, and he isn't now part of a flock. His chances aren't very good. He could meet up with a flock and be able to become a part of it, but not necessarily.
