This video was taken on monday morning. The bird is showing great strength and eating well. We keep it in a small cage near where a community of dove feed in our back yard and are working on weaning him off of the mealworm and formula to eating seeds. Soon as he is showing ability to forage for his own seeds under the feeder I will leave him out at the feeder in hopes he will integrate in with our local dove community.
Here is a video on him from Monday 5/7, two days after he was rescued.
This is the fourth day afer rescuing the baby dove. We are feeding the dove a formula avalable from petshops for hand feeding young birds.
