What are some of the symptoms of a sick pigeon?
Any bird, particularly pigeon cannot tell about its condition or if it feels sick, however, those who have been taking care of birds for some time now know how to distinguish a sick bird from a bird that is in good condition. The birds are prone to various ailments and injuries. When a bird that shows off seems sick, you will know through its look and behavior. Not every sick bird will show off the kind of illnesses that they have, however, there are some illnesses that may be visibly seen easily. A healthy bird looks clean and happy, as you can see in some photos. However, the sick birds may seem sick if their eyes are dull, if the feathers are fluffy during cold weather, the membranes of the eyes are swollen, the eyes are wet of if there are discharges in the mouth and nose area, the feathers are dropping, wounds and cuts.
While some of the physical features may be a clear sign of diseases, it may be hard to tell if the signs on some birds and some might not show the same signs at all. If you are very much concern about the signs of a sick bird, then you can clearly know through the status of their health condition through their behavior. A healthy bird is alert all the time, especially in the case of pigeons. They are always active and they just do whatever most of the pigeons do. However, a sick one might show off some signs like hardness to breath or fast breathing, incapacity to fly, too much thirst, sitting all the time even when you come nearby. A sick bird may also suffer from loose feathers, they roost in an open space or even on your patio, cannot sit still and is limping, the head is reclining to one side and seems asleep all the time. Even if not all of the birds show off any signs of illness, however the behavior is not typical to give a warning to human beings.
It will be hard for the bird breeders to find a sick bird at their feeders, however, being sick is a natural part of their life. The strong ones will soon recover; however, the weaker ones will really die. But you can help the birds recover and regain their strength by keeping the feeders clean all the time to lessen the spreading of the diseases among them, sustain fresh seeds with high amount of oil for additional strength. You can also keep the feeding area safe from the predators that might catch them, provide clean water all the time by placing ground dishes for them to drink. If there is a dead bird around, dispose it off accordingly or better yet, call the wildlife bureau to help you in disposing the dead bird properly.
