Baby pigeon sick

How hard it must be for you to watch this poor sick bird, wishing you could help. Unfortunately there isn't anything Dr B can suggest for the bird without examining it and running tests. The only hope for this bird to get well is for an avian vet to examine the bird and give it medicine.
