White Pigeon Recovers

UPDATE: Released the Pigeon this morning, it was keen to join the others, and frosty spell now over.

Two weeks after escaping death from a Sparrowhawk attack, the White pigeon is well on the way to full recovery. I have been treating the neck injury with anti bacterial cream, and gave it a bath to remove the dried blood and damaged feathers.

Has been happy sitting in a box in the kitchen with plenty of food and water, but today decided it was time to fly, finding it  on top of an open door.

Was unable to fly two weeks ago, so I'm delighted it's now well enough to do so.

Will transfer it to the Aviary soon, then release back to the flock when fully fit.
