there's a pigeon with owner-ring but no racing ring that has been in Elmwood all day- we'd hoped he was just resting but he's still here. We can't get close enough to pick him up to see contact info on ring- does anyone know who it may belong to or if someone has experience with pigeons that may be able to get a look at the ring?

We had a stray pigeon a few weeks back. The following websites provided helpful advice and information -

Sadly our visitor was attacked and killed while grounded. He may have been on his last legs anyway. I hope you have a more successful outcome.

hi thanks for that- much appreciated -but we managed to read the bird's number and the owner has just been to collect him - he has hurt his wing but fingers crossed after a couple of weeks of TLC he'll be ok- such a stunning beautiful creature.
