A beautiful pigeon showed up here 3 days ago. It has bands on both legs. It ate some seed I had down and then went up to the roof. It left about 6 PM, but was back the next morning. It's been doing that for 3 days. It won't let me get close enough to read what is on the bands, and now won't even come down except to eat and drink some water.

I don't know what to do with it or about it. I called the wildlife people and they said it might just be taking a rest, but what if it's not? I really don't have any kind of shelter it can go in and right now, it's raining. It's not cold, but still. It does look at me when I go out and talk to it. When it first got here, it wasn't afraid of me at all, but wouldn't let me get close to it.

Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated.

If you have a long handlednet or blanket or largetowel,you might be able to catch him just before dark. Or there is the old proppedopen box witha string that you can pull when the bird is under it. Sounds like a lost pet or racer. Thank you for helping him.
