Wood pigeon not moving from garden


I've had a wood pigeon in my garden all day and it didnt move when I came out with seed. It's moved around a bit, and I cant see any obvious blood or wing breaks but it is just stood in the same position on the floor now since I went out with a bowl of water. It did try to move away from me but it seems to be moving with difficulty. What should I do?

  • Hi & welcome to the community, sorry for late reply, is the bird still in your garden today?

  • Check the www.helpwildlife.co.uk website and see if they have a rescue centre listed near you. Does it have a white collar? If not then it's a juvenile. If it has been catted it will need antibiotics as soon as possible. Good luck.
