Duke

PERMANENT RESIDENT – An elderly feral pigeon who has joined us for a comfortable retirement
    

Name/s: Duke
Species: Feral Pigeon
History: Duke had been visiting the same garden for 8 years! One day they found he wasn’t eating or flying so they took him to East Sussex WRAS. There they didn’t find much wrong with him but suspect she is simply elderly and perhaps a bit arthritic.
Diagnosis: Duke did have an old, scabby wound on his chest which probably had some impact on his health and flying, but he is certainly elderly and has settled in very happily here so we decided it was best he stayed.
Gender: Male
Age: Duke is at least 8 years old though we suspect he is well into double figures.
