|Rescue Me ID: 14-09-02-00523Pigeon |
I found a young pigeon in the parking lot at work. Co-workers said it had been in the lot a couple of days. It appeared to have a broken wing. When it saw me, it headed straight for me as if it knew I would help. I secured it over night at work, with food an water. The following day I took it to Westland Michigan Humane Society. First I was told that if they took the injured bird that they would euthanize it, then I was told they could not take it at all because I found it in Redford Twp. and that Redford had very strict policies about their wild life. (I never knew an animal could be turned away by the Humane Society because of its zip code). I took the bird home and I have tried unsuccessfully to bandage its wing to help it heal and return it to the wild. No luck, it keeps taking off the bandages. I have 5 rescued pet birds and 2 kittens. I am not equipped to help this little bird with its injured wing. He is alert, has a great appetite, and appears to be otherwise healthy and it loves to take baths. I need to find it a home. I try not to handle the bird too much but he is very docile, as if he just wants to belong and it loves to have its head rubbed when I clean out the cage. I have called a wildlife rescue in the Detroit, Michigan area but I have not receive a call back. This little bird needs someone to help. It may need to be someplace with other rescued pigeons who cannot be returned to the wild, but it deserves a chance. Please help if you can. (Less)

|PIease Read Before Rehabilitating or Rescuing a Wild Bird in Michigan|
Wild Bird rescue work in Michigan can be rewarding if this work matches your IifestyIe. Birds in the wild can be accidentally harmed through the intervention of well-meaning people attempting to rescue them. Baby birds and fledglings, especially, may appear vulnerable, injured, or abandoned by their mothers, when in fact they are going through the normal process of learning to fly and leaving the nest. Fledglings with feathers should most often be observed and left alone for a couple of hours if not in any obvious danger. Baby birds that have fallen on the ground should be returned to their nests. However, if a wild bird is genuinely injured, it will receive the best care from a professional Wildlife Rehabilitator. Injured birds should be carefully placed in a box with soft fabric and holes punched in the lid to be transported to a local Wildlife Rehabilitator.
