My husband had to work in Manhattan yesterday doing interviews and, while he was waiting in the lobby of a building somewhere, he saw what he called a white pigeon literally dragged itself through the doors so, thinking that maybe it had gotten hit by a car and had a broken leg, he quickly walked over to it to pick it up (thinking he would put it in the car and bring it home for me to take care of) and, as he scooped it up, the bird died right in his hands! He was so affected by it, his eyes actually filled up with tears when he was telling me about it... But, as I explained to him, it was, most likely, not a white pigeon but a white ringneck dove and they don't survive in the streets. I HATE the stupid practice of releasing white doves for weddings, ceremonies or whatever! They should make it illegal! These poor birds are domesticated and born in captivity and have NO survival skills whatsoever so they never make it. There is one that has joined the flock of pigeons I feed every day (my 'clients') and I have been wrecking my brain trying to come up with a way to trap it because I know that, when winter comes and it turns real cold, she'll die out there - but I still haven't come up with anything so, if anybody has a good idea, please let me know!
