Rock Dove


IMGP0012, originally uploaded by Petie_in_Cbus.

There was a 'rock dove' living on our front porch for about a week. He was really tame and would sleep either under the chair or in a corner. He didn't seem able to fly but would scurry around. We fed him some seeds and chips but he didn't eat. A few times a friend would come and visit him. One night jg tortured birdie with his cat (not very nice) and then the next day I stopped at home after work and he wasn't on the porch. When jg got home 2hrs later, the birdie was back and it looked like it had been attacked by one of the many strays that fester around the block. It had a broken leg and wing so I took it to the Wildlife Hospital, but still haven't heard back from them. I bet his friend is sad. :-(
