This is a PM I just received from new member Ima Saver (Desiree). I don't know her location, plus will need to go offline soon, so I copied the message hoping that other members may be able to help:

Desiree, please let us know your location. Without it, we won't know which rehabber/sanctuary is closest to you. Thank you for doing your best to help this poor bird, we'll do our best to help!

With very rare exceptions, pigeon diseases aren't contagious to humans or animals other than birds (that's just what extermination cmpanies say to get people's business), and anyway what you've got there is an injured bird. If he is sick, it will be because the wing is now infected, and he must be very weak if he hasn't eaten for 3 days.
Please keep him indoors in a large cardboard box with some breathing holes, with newspaper on the bottom and a bowl of water until someone can help you. Outside, he doesn't stand a chance.

Welcome to Pigeon Angels, Desiree. Hi there/Bye

Many thanks for helping this injured pigeon. Thank You

As Teresa as asked, we need to know your general location in order to help you find some assistance.

Could you tell us a little more about the injuries? A picture or two will help as well.
It's good that he is drinking. I would suggest replacing the plain water with some rehydration solution (to a cup of room temperature water add just a pinch of salt and sugar). Offer it to him as you were the plain water.

Although hydration is most important, he needs to be eating. What have you offered him?


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.
