On my way home a pigeon tumbled from the sky in front of me. I jumped off my bike, stopped traffic, and scooped her up. With the help of a kind stranger I called Animal Rescue, and together we waited for them. I held her against my chest with one hand, and was surprised at how peaceful she was – closing her eyes occasionally and dozing off. When Animal Rescue showed up, they did a quick physical and brought her to a bird shelter for recovery.
