I use a 12" diameter, 2" deep metal pan and wanted to make the pigeon

I put water in another 12" diameter, 2" deep metal pan and placed the
pigeon in it as soon as I got it home. It drank for a long time (maybe

Thanks for the advice but the pigeon took off this morning. It saw some
pigeons circling above and joinde them. It is out of our hands. We hope
for the best but it will be difficult with one leg injured.
I posted about Csapi and Potyi. They are both gone. We see Potyi from
time to time but he is just as shy as the others. Did not see Csapi for
a while. Hope for the best. There is an open field next to a school and
I put some food out there in the mornings but do not stick around to
make friends. Maybe Csapi and Potyi are with them - maybe not.
I just hate to go by that RR Bridge. You never know what you find. >> Stay informed about: Another pigeon under the bridge
