I woke up today morning to feed my birds so i found my black female pigeon dead, this got me sad but the problem is that my male pigeon is not eating since his wife died, he's just sitting in the cage without doing anything, I'm worried because my other pigeons are eating well like there's no tomorrow, What should i do? i didn't expect birds to be that emotional and sensitive, how do i get him feel better? do you think bringing another female pigeon is a good solution?
look at his face now, you see? he's just sitting in one place, looks so sad.
This is him with her before she die

I like birds. Poor guy. I wish there was something you could do to provide him comfort. Does he make any noise that sound like he's crying? What if you try to feed him from your hand? Will he eat what you feed him from your hand? Or will he ignore you? He does appear to be very unhappy that he has lost his mate. I think pigeons are monogamous and can get very emotionally attached to their partner. I would try bringing another female pigeon to see if that would help, especially if he's not willing to eat or drink no matter what you try to do to comfort him.1
