I photographed this feral pigeon through the window, I thought it had a bunch of loose feathers on it's chest but on looking at the pics is it a growth? Also appears blind on left side. It was feeding and seemed OK flew off well.
It is a bit difficult to see Anthony, we'll make out what it is I mean. I can see the prodruding feathers. Do you have any pigeon rescue places near or your local ver practice?
Yes I think we have such places, but the bird doesn't seem distressed at all, and flew off strongly. I did look out of the back door at it and as soon as it saw me it flew away. I should think it would be very difficult to catch. I might do more harm than good trying to do so. Thanks anyway
Lovely looking bird. There might be a bit of fancy Pidge in there somewhere. Try to get another photo of the left side if you see it again. Looks in good shape.
