For Fennie - Fennie dove

Uploaded Image

No problems with putting up a photo today! This is Fennie dove who was injured quite a while ago - end of May I think - and has been staying the night ever since. His wing area now seems healed and he can fly much more easily, but still stays the night. Last night he had a lady friend sleep over! A night under the gutter on the roof is hardly the Ritz though, but there is a good breakfastLaughing

Fennie's Avatar Yes he looks much better, his neck is healed though I guess his shoulder is still rather sore. Anyway he won't be back on the olive branch duty for a while. But the poor chap looks thin! He needs to put on some weight or he'll be caught short in the winter. Quite an intelligent bird I'd say. I expect he'd know a Higgs Boson if he met one, but don't ask him to fly around a circular tunnel.Very HappyVery Happy

Well done, Faith, for all your looking after him. I thank you on his behalf.

Blackbird's Avatar What a handsome bird but I agree- a bit thin. And what a trooper too.

Fennie's Avatar Faith, is it my imagination or do doves have longer necks than pigeons? The dove's shape is different, isn't it? It isn't just the albino nature of the feathers?

Faith's Avatar The doves are white pigeons, but not albinos - they have dark eyes. In this photo Fennie might not a bit delicate and thin even, but he is not really. His neck is stretched up a bit so he can search for peanuts! I don't think the doves are a different shape to the pigeons - but shape varies slightly from bird to bird, male to female.
