How to hand feed a baby pigeon

This baby was attacked by another bird and was almost dead from cold when we found him.  I didn’t think he’d live, but a couple of neighbor girls wanted to try to save him and were able to warm him up.  My daughter raised him and discovered how to get him to open his mouth.  Baby pigeons don’t automatically open up like other birds because their parents barf into their mouths.  This is a little known, interesting fact.
