Hi, I think your friend has himself a pigeon. Margaret is right about the owner killing them when they fly off track and I believe it's the same with homing pigeons. Never-the-less it might be nice to know what the pigeon was raised for.

I watched as a pigeon was struck by a car and was able to rescue it. He was the sweetest little fellow, some kind of rolling or tumbling pigeon.

The idea of a racing pigeon kind of makes sense. The bird was found this morning on the step of a friend. He didn't move as he left for work this morning and was still there when he returned 8 hours later. He gave it water and some sort of food, it was very tame. With night coming on he decided to put it in a cage for its own protection - he lives in a somewhat rural area, lots of wildlife. I believe he plans to call a group here that takes in injured birds.

...most birds that shape, with red feet, are pigeons. Yours looks very pretty - it may be a special kind of pigeon. They are sweet, smart birds. Does it have a band around its leg ? The numbers make it possible to trace the breeder and sometimes the owner. But if it is a racing pigeon that flew off track, some owners often kill them.
Racing pigeons cannot survive on their own. They are used to being fed, and they are serious prey for hawks/owl.
