So John nicknamed the new baby dove Eggbert and now we can’t call him/her anything else. *grin* Anyway, the mother dove (Freddie) got up off the baby for a few minutes yesterday, so I took the opportunity to try and grab a photo. I had to use the flash since it was early evening, and it’s through the cage bars, but it came out usable anyway. I kept Freddie in the photo as a size comparison – plus, she’s such a pretty white turtle dove!
I think his beak is growing faster than he is! Hard to believe that less than a week ago he was less than an inch long and living inside a shell – nature’s amazing.
