Ants can be deadly to confined birds.
Babies and birds with health, physical and neurological issues are especially vulnerable.PLEASE
take immediate action to remove any
ants that you see around confined birds.
Even if there are only a few, as shown in the photo, you can bet there are many more to follow.
If you do come across a pigeon that is being attacked by ants, I would suggest submerging the bird's body in room temperature water as the most efficient way to remove the ants. Do not spend time picking them off the bird. This takes too much time, not to mention the pain the pigeon is enduring from the ant bites.
A Pigeon's Prayer
Please watch over us while we fly,
Keeping us safe from the predators that share the sky.
If we become ill or injured in any way,
Please lead us to safety where we are welcome to stay.
