A couple of months ago, together with a wonderful woman and her wonderful 10 year old daughter, I rescued an injured pigeon on Broadway, in New York City. All of us had seen the bird in distress and wanted to help.

We took the pigeon to the Wild Bird Fund Center here in Manhattan, where
she received excellent care. She had been suffering from "tanglefoot," the result of heartless humans putting glue on their window ledges to keep pigeons away. Her llittle feet and wings had gotten tangled up in the glue and could not move, and she had scraped off some of her feathers in trying vainly to free herself.

The Wild Bird Fund Center cleaned her and performed skilled surgery on her, removing the glued areas from her feet. They kept her for several weeks until she was recovered and strong enough to be released. We three rescuers had a lovely little ceremony releasing her back on Broadway where she had been found (this is the preferred release). It was joyous to watch her fly into the treetops and then into the sky.

I have rescued many pigeons, and taken many to the Wild Bird Fund Center. They are the only wildlife rehabilitation center in New York City, and they deserve our support. They receive no funding from government agencies, and rely entirely on donations. Please consider making a tax-deductible donation, and please visit their two wonderful websites.
