I have no idea. It seems fowl-like. We found it in the yard (5 acres).
It looks like a young dove or pigeon.
That looks an awful lot like a vulture chick to me. Especially with those nostrils....made for catching the whiff of remote carrion.
I wish I knew but I do love it's expression in the first picture. It looks happy and serene. Hope you found out soon so you can feed it properly and/or turn it over to a wildlife rescue.
Maybe a kildeer???
Does it have webbed toes??
Quote:Look at the leathery skin from the beak to around the eye. That looks very "vulturey" to me also. If it is a vulture, they need a special diet and care. Very hard to rear and release to the wild.
I recommend taking to a wildlife rehabilitator.
I really don't think it is a vulture but I could go with a dove. Maybe you could ask to have this thread moved to Pigeons and doves and change the thread title to something like What is this, is it a dove or pigeon?
