A neighbor called a few days ago and told me that she had a pigeon on her porch that was injured and couldn't fly away. I went over to check it out---the pigeon/dove let me catch and handle it. I found a band on its leg, but it had no information on it. There doesn't seem to be anything wrong with her, but she won't fly away. She CAN fly. But she won't fly away. We were both afraid that her dogs and cats would kill it, so I brought it home and stuck it in a parakeet cage.
She is eating (wild bird seed and chicken feed mixed) and drinking very well. I took her out of the cage and turned her loose in my guest bathroom for a while. I ran the sink full of water. She splashed about in the water and then roosted on the shower curtain rod for about an hour. She flits about but has no problem being caught. She sat on my lap for a while last night.
I'm sure she belongs to someone, though I have NO idea how to find out who that person is. We live in the middle of no-where. How she even ended up at the neighbor's is beyond me. I have no idea what she needs or what to do with her. Advice and suggestions greatly appreciated!!!
