Hi,
I weas reading posts and I noticed you help alot, I'm new to this site, I found a pigeon last night and couldn't fly (with no lack of trying) so I took him/her(i named it Larry, not sure if it's a male/female) in and put a bunch of blankets on a cage I had for my squirrel, and put Larry in it. I cleaned all the blood off the inside of the wing and put antibacterial/pain reliver cream on it. I put water and seed in the cage for it to eat, and he was eating this morning,=-), I also noticed this morning the wing has come up a little bit from where it was last night, I'm not sure if it's broken? I hoping I don't have to take Larry away from it's home, I don't mind helping him and releasing it but if theres nothing I can do than I will take Larry somewhere, I guess what I'm asking is your thoughts! Please let me know what I should do,
Thank you so much,
Jackie and Larry
Thank you for rescuing Larry. It is possible that Larry may get full use of his wing depending on if it is not broken and just sprained. Can you post a picture of the injured wing and how it is positioned compared to the other wing?

You should post your thoughts to the forum as we have alot of rehabilitators there as well as rescue groups that might be able to help, should Larry not get full use of his wing.
