Pimsonthelawn's Avatar Faith, I have a very strange pigeon/dove coming to my garden, it has the colourings of a feral pigeon the face of a collared dove, do you know if they ever interbreed? I will try and get a picture of it if I can.
Had a terrible encounter with the hawk last week, poor collared dove I thought it was in a safe place, I was wrong!

Off to read you blog now.

Faith's Avatar Hi Pims, I don't know if collared doves and feral pigeons interbreed. I wouldn't have thought they would've needed to! There are always plenty of both around to find a mate from! I'd certainly be interested in seeing a photo. Sorry about the hawk - do you mean it caught the one you are talking about?

Pimsonthelawn's Avatar Yes Faith the hawk got the poor bird it had only been slightly damage in the first attack so I put it next to a high fence under some bushes to keep an eye on it for half an hour but then there was a big bang the dove had hit the conservatory window in its bid to escape again the hawk now had it. I was so sorry, I should of put it in a box in the shed instead.

Faith's Avatar Oh what a shame, poor dove and poor you. I've made mistakes similar to that before, so don't blame yourself.
