June 14 - Join The Parrot Club on Tuesday June 14 at 7 pm ET for a talk by Elizabeth Young, founder and director of Palomacy. Palomacy is a nonprofit pigeon rescue and rehoming organization started in 2007 in the San Francisco Bay area to address the many injured and unreleasable wild and domestic pigeons that fall through cracks in the animal welfare network. Palomacy provides vet care, foster homes, and adoptions and has placed more than 1400 birds along with coaching, education, and referral since its forming.

June 13 is International Pigeon Day, so we’re happy to have Elizabeth talk to us the next day in honor of these intelligent, emotional, adaptable, resilient, and fascinating birds.

What should you do if you find an injured pigeon? How do you tell a wild pigeon from a homing pigeon from a racing pigeon? What is pigeon racing? What’s the difference between a dove and a pigeon? What does a leg band on a pigeon mean? How do you care for a rescued pigeon? Why are dove releases cruel? How does caring for a pigeon differ from caring for a parrot? Find out the answers to these questions and much more as Elizabeth tells us all about Palomacy and the great work they do.

Read all about Palomacy at including the many heartwarming rescue stories on their blog. Maybe you’d like to welcome a pigeon into your life? Donations welcome at Also check out the very cool Double Decker Bird Stroller!
