Please submit your report about the pigeon needing human help (injured, ill, orphaned, etc.) using the web form below. Fill in the details and click "Send".
Someone will get back to you shortly.
Now, instead of only waiting to hear back from us, we encourage you to visit and join our NYCPRC Discussion Forum.
There is considerable information available for download and via web links there, and the information you have sent by the form on this page will have automatically been posted in the NYCPRC's forum for discussion of how to best help the pigeon.
We encourage you to catch the pigeon you are concerned about and bring him or her indoors where it is safe. All too often, by the time you or we get back to the location where you saw the bird, there is no way to find him/her, or it's too late to help.
You are very likely this pigeons last and best hope. So if you possibly can, instead of waiting for us to get back to you, please take the bird to one of the wildlife care and rehabilitation centers for which contact info is given on our home page.
Although our main expertise is in pigeon rescue and care, we in this group care about all kinds of birds and all animals. If the animal you're concerned about is not a pigeon, we will do whatever we can to help you help them regardless of species.
Note however, that NYCPRC is simply a small group of individuals who have varying levels of pigeon knowledge from pigeon watcher to licensed wildlife rehabber. We have no official standing however, and we each work volutarily and without reward, fitting the rescue and rehab work we do into otherwise busy lives. NYCPRC is not a commercial or a non profit organization. NYCPRC has no money or facilities to offer. We have no "place" you can bring a needy bird to - but we will go out of our way to assist you in doing the right thing and getting the right help for the bird. We will help you as much as we can.
The one thing all participants here have in common - they give a damn about their fellow creatures in this journey that is life.
IMPORTANT: We are only a small group of volunteers. So if you were able to rescue this bird yourself or if the bird is no longer there, please use this same form to let us know right away. Someone going to the location you gave and not finding the bird you reported can mean that another bird will fail to be rescued because no additional volunteer is available. Thank you!
