On my way for a walk this morning, I came across this pigeon that just wasn’t flying away from me as they usually do. I was honestly two feet from this bird and it just set there looking up at me and making a sound that seemed to indicate it was very stressed. I’m sure it was. The bird stood up which is when I noticed it was keeping it’s weight off of it’s right leg and foot. I hope it learns to survive with it’s injury.
These photos are via the Nikon and the iPhone. After a bit, it flew about three feet but just barely. I decided to leave the bird in peace. Poor little thing. I know many people very much dislike the common pigeon, but it’s still sad to see any animal in this situation. I wonder just how the bird was injured?
