Dead and Dying Pigeon

Recommended Posts

No - just mucus - A bit difficult carving up a pigeon with bunny huggers passing but the next one(s) I find I will bring back to base camp and have a really good look.

this sounds like a typical reaction to pigeons eating beech masts -- it usually happens in a "beech mast year" which this isn't, not around here (Hants) anyway, if you have good crops of beech masts round your way that's your answer, its the right time of year for it.

I don't know why this happens but it is thought that a reaction to the beech masts causes their throats to close up and they starve.

I had a half-dead pigeon walking round my garden last week, but I saw what caused it. 2 seagulls attacked it in flight and it fell out of the air like a stone. Couldn't fly but it couldn't half run!
