Lost birds...

Please report stray racing pigeons.

Thank you for reporting a Racing Pigeon. Your help is very much appreciated. Before we can notify the owner, the pigeon must be contained and held for collection.

Racing pigeons are well trained by their owners but sometimes they can get lost due to dehydration, etc. If you see a pigeon that is weak and lost try to catch it (if it can get away the bird is most probably okay). Lost racing pigeons can be very hungry and tired because they are used to being fed and watered by their owner so if you have one in please give it some water in a small (but deep) container and maybe some food (eg. rice, dried peas, lentils, corn). Lost racing pigeons are also in great danger from predators such as cats and hawks.

A pigeon maybe identifiable by a name and telephone number stamped on it's wing feathers you can check for this by gently holding the bird and stretching the wing out and a stamp will be on the end feathers (it's is important to check both wings). Also sometimes pigeons carry telephone rings and you can check for that on the birds leg (a metal identification ring is on all racing pigeons but is not a telephone ring). If the bird has been lost during a race it will have a rubber ring on one leg too (ignore this as it can not identify the owner). If there is no owner identification on the bird please note the metal (plastic covered) ring number (usually on the right leg).

Example
Numbers are 'GB2001A50080' or 'NEHU2001HAR2158' the first letters on the ring identify which union the bird belongs (Prefix - below). The rest of the ring number is classed as the identification 'part' this should be given to the pigeon union that you wish to deal with.
