Pay attention to the behavior of the pigeon. If it is:- unnatural turns head;- spinning in one place;- can not get a beak at the stern;- stands or walks unsteadily, or even collapses on its side;- in-flight crashes into obstacles,it means that maybe he's sick of Newcastle disease, which causes brain damage and Central nervous system.
