Default Pigeon help

There is a pigeon sitting on top of my feeder stand & it's got it's feathers puffed up. It's sitting still & looks like it's squawking but there is no sound coming out, almost like it's heaving to be sick

I just went outside & didn't see it at first so walked really close to it & it makes no attempt to move... any clues or ideas on what to do.

It's been there for about half an hour doing the same thing....

It sat like that for nearly 4 hrs then I had to go out. When i got home an hour later it had gone

The RSPCA were going to come & get it once i had it contained but I didn't get the chance

The woodies around here are looking pretty scruffy right now and moulting all over the garden. I have one who looks like it's been in a fight.
