i am so disappointed that nobody has stepped forward to claim this beautiful pigeon. why put a leg band on a bird if you don't intend to claim it if found? i have contacted everyone that i found information for, but nobody has stepped up to say it is theirs.
we thought that when we let it loose and it flew off that it would go home - it hasn't. the problem is that the bird has no fear of predators - white pigeon sitting on the garage roof with hawks flying over, shuffling a long on the ground with cats/dog around. i have personally saved it several times from getting killed. we cannot get it caged again, as it won't let us get close enough - now that it is well. we don't mind it staying , but it is just a matter of time before something gets it and can't be outside all the time to watch over it.
