Thanks to everyone that responded.
I live in the UK, so I doubt that this little fellow flew all the way
from the US. RSPCA is the 'Royal Society for Provention of Cruelty to
Animals'. They are your first port of call for all animal related
advice and they have teams that'll come out if they think it
appropriate. I think that they also have some legal powers, so they
can take abused animals away if necessary.
Pigeon seems to be brighter. He's looking fatter, so maybe we're
feeding him too much. We've taken the line that he'll eat what he
wants, so we've left him plenty of food.
Today we thought he'd flown off, but then we spotted him perched on a
window ledge. However, this ledge was about head height, so he must
have flown a bit. He fluttered down after a while. His left wing is
still not ok, the tip trails on the ground as he walks and it doesn't
seem to fit close to his body as the other side does.
Due to the enclosed nature of the garden, I don't think that preditors
as an issue, but I'll certainly give some thought to shelter if it
looks as though hes staying long term.
