Doves make terrible nests, and one day my mom called me to say she had a baby bird for me to rehab. It had fallen out of a tree in a parking lot and she found it by her car. I went and got it, and man, that was an ugly baby. Not a single feather, eyes still not quite "baked" and tiny. I didn't figure it would live, but I put it in a little box and took it everywhere with me, feeding it like the mama bird does. Not exactly like the mama bird because the baby puts it's head in her mouth to eat regurgitated... umm... stuff. I can't remember all the details of food and feeding, it's been a very long time ago. Anyway, dh named him Wendell, and that bird loved my husband. He would sit on dh's desk and peck at the pen he was using. And sometimes poop, haha.
He grew up and needed to be a regular bird. At least my husband thought he did. I was fine with letting him hang out in the house. We let him go, and he hung around the yard for three days, landing on dh's shoulder or head every time he went outside. He finally left. At least I like to imagine him finding a girl and eloping.

A few years later mom did it again and we did round two with Lupine. My husband is the Dove Whisperer because that bird loved him too. Dh says that Wendell was probably female and Lupine was probably a male. What do we know.

Sorry for the bird novel, looks like you got yourself a little friend.

I had to keep the cleaner on hand for um well what c
goes is comes out kinda of deal. Josiah kept petting the bird. The bird doesn't seem to mind the attention at all. We have lots of dove that roost over our house in the rafters of the awning. So most likely it could have came from one of them. Shocking part it can fly but seems to like humans to much expecially with dove season around the corner. Dh says it's a morning dove fledgling he shocked by its behavior if it was wild. Either way they kids are thrilled. I am getting a kick out of their reactions to it. Dd1 says it's spoiled rotten already lol. She kept fussing at it for either not eating or being messy lol she a mother hen lol.
