Wood pigeon rescue

Apparently baby wood pigeons can’t fly for the first seven days, so the parents come and feed it on the ground.

After phoning for advice, we have given Woody a drink of sugar and water, and released him back into the bushes where he came from. Apparently baby wood pigeons can’t fly for the first seven days, so the parents come and feed it on the ground. It does seem to be missing some feathers off one wing, so we’ll keep an eye on it.
