Hello everyone.

I am new to the forum and I would like some help.

About 3 days ago it was "very" rainy and wet outside. I have 4 cats and one of them chased a pigeon home. My cat did not attack the bird. It was just following it because I don't think it knew what to do with it. So I went outside to see why the bird was not flying away from my cat. I noticed the bird was SOAKED so I immediately caught it with a cloth and brought it inside.

After placing the bird in a really big cardboard box. I gave it some mixed bird seed that we feed our Parrotlet and a dish of water. I then proceeded to examine the bird which had signs of an injured wing. It has a scab on the edge of the wing which appears to be maybe a flight injury or something?

The bird seems to be in great overall health after reading the stickys. The only problems are it wont fly and it seems to quiver "alot". I am going to assume the quivering is from it being very stressed or fearful of me?

Anyway thats the story.

Now I cant for the life find out what breed of bird this is. It looks like a pigeon but its not like any pigeon i have ever seen. The kind we have here in Pennsylvania are Rocktail Pigeons.

Below are some photos I took. I would like to mention that this bird does not have any bands and I would like to help the bird back to health so it can be released back into its natural habitat.







Please any help is appreciated!

well it's not very old looking either to me. if it can't fly are you going to keep it as a pet? if so you might want to build a small loft for it to keep it in instead of a box :) safer that way at night to in it's own loft..
