I named him Rain... by el-ruben I named him Rain... by el-ruben
This poor little guy was awaiting for me on my way to the work on August 10, he stood lonely on the pavement in the cold rain as people passed by. Of course I took him and rushed home! He seemed to be about 15 days old, and I never took care of such little pigeons before. In the evening I noticed he had sniffles and grasped for breath... Now I'm giving him medicine and do hope he's going to be okay. :pray: I just can't lose him!

For those of you who is wondering about Glaphyra - I set her free on July 5, she was completely healthy.

I don't know if you read all the comments, I told one of my friends what happened the night before I found this little one. So... The night before I found her I remembered and cried about Clara, the pigeon I couldn't save once. And I thought, it would be so nice to get a pigeon to take care of in the memory of Clara... And in the morning when I was going to my job... you know the rest part. I'm still amazed how it worked! Now little Rain is the main source of joy in my life. :)

This is just lovely, what you're doing!
For future reference ( there are quite a few babies at risk where I live; out in the road and such. They often get hit :( ) how do you exactly take care of a baby bird-- how to make sure they know how to survive in the wild, at least, when you do let them go?

No Wildlife Centers or anything like that? o.o
That's how I started - volunteering at the South FL Wildlife Center. It was amaaaaazing.

No, nothing like that here. :( I also know that our vet clinics are not allowed to deal with pigeons and other feral birds at all.
