What do wildlife rehabilitators do with pigeons?
The wildlife rehabbers are in charge in taking of the wildlife animals and for wounded birds like pigeons. They will be the one to take care of the birds and then transport them to the rehabbing facility until such time they are well and they can survive in the wild once again. Only then they will be released. Most of the young or baby pigeons will be brought to the rehabbing centers, they may be orphan or not. It is important to check if the mom is still alive or if the babies are really orphan or not before you call the rehabbers for help. If you have found a baby or an injured pigeon, you must first tell if it is orphan or not. Taking the bird that may seem abandoned is unlawful. It will be best to leave it as is first, because the mom may be just in close proximity looking for food or looking for the baby.
To know if the pigeon is still young, check for the fuzzy, short features on the body and the tail or wings, that may determine their age. These may often have weak muscles to fly and they may have not yet been fed by the moms from the nest that made them look and feel weak. This is the time when they will be vulnerable, since they can easily be the target of the predators and the stray cats or dogs. It is essential to be mindful in keeping the area safe for the baby, while still enabling the parents to continue in seeking for the baby. For instance, you might be able to move them off the highway or busy road and take them to the sidewalk or shaded part of the road.
If you see that the pigeon is injured, it may be the baby or the adult, you can place it in a box with a cover and then place a soft cloth over the lid and keep the box in a cool place. make sure that the box will not be seen by anyone or the safety of the bird may be compromised. The birds will be in shock easily if they are hurt and they will die from the shock and not for the wound. If the pigeon has been hit by the window, but it is still breathing, it might just need a little time to get back its strength, give it sometime and it may be able to fly once again. Don’t dare to feed the pigeon or give water. As soon as the bird is safe, you can call the wildlife rehabber to seek help. They will be the one to take care of the bird and they will be the one to feed them and free them when they get better.
