Pigeon Photo of the Day

Line up on the aviary - a week or so ago - is L to R - Jethro, Demelza, April

All this year's offspring of Pan and Mariette. I am pretty sure that Demelza and April are males.

Camilla's Avatar What a lovely home they have Faith how lucky they are too to have you look after them.

How is Rose the injured bird you are caring for?

I knew nothing about Collared Doves until I moved here and saw two adults taking time to sit on their nest which they built in next doors garden under their sky dish they are pretty intelligent birds as they have a little roof over their head so are protected against the wind and the rain . What sweet little birds they are too. The first set of two baby's flew their nest in July now the mother is sitting on her second nest. When she wants to fly off for a bit she coos for her mate and he comes down and takes over. I read that collared doves can have up to nine hatches in a year apart from winter.

Faith's Avatar Yes pigeons and doves of all kinds can have lots of babies a year, but depends on the food supply I suppose.

Lily Rose is stable, thanks Camilla. She is fragile and won't feed herself, but is still alive, so that's the main thing!Very Happy
