Little Wounded Dove

Mourning doves (3 of 4).jpg
Doves have very expressive faces.

This dove was behaving normally and even had a mate. But I noticed a bright red spot on its neck (below). We think it was a recent wound. I don't know how severe it is, so I'm glad the dove seemed happy and hoppy. I have seen her since this photo was taken, on April 2, and the spot is smaller and browner. She is still healthy and happy. Thank goodness!

  1. I wonder what happened to her! I hope she continues to heal andnsurvive. Nice red squirrel and redpoll, also!!!

  2. Well, Mary, I hope it wasn't one of my cats! But I doubt it, really. But she is doing fine. She has a husband and they are happily trotting all over together! Have a great trip in Texas!
