I’ve been seeing this dove for months now. His wing looks like it’s falling off. I’ve also seen two birds with black intentions on their neck and belly. (Adult mockingbird and young male sparrow) Also, two birds were all puffed up and leaning over. Their beaks were open. (adult mockingbird and female sparrow) The mockingbird wasn’t moving for about 3 hours. The sparrow had trouble walking and was acting weird. There also was a mockingbird fledgling. I noticed it was very skinny and different looking. Then I saw it weeks after and it was very skinny and had matted feathers. I saw yesterday that an adult mockingbird was attacking the fledgling! Why do you think this is?
