3 years old! Happy Birthday…
Cute little baby Havok
This is George, he’s a baby wood pigeon that was brought in by a pet cat. He had a scratch on his back and was at first in shock, but despite the RSPCA telling us he wouldn’t survive the night, we stayed up with him to check he was fed, that the lining of his box was clean, and holding him close to my chest to warm him up when he got cold.
This goes to show that young animals can be stronger than you think and not to give up on them until there’s no chance of survival. I’m so incredibly tired but it is so rewarding knowing that this little guy is going to have a chance at life now and it’s made me even more determined to do well in the animal science degree I’ll be starting at university in September, and to help animals for the rest of my life.
Our pleasure. You’re welcome to submit them via our tumblr, if you’d like. Thank you for your interest.
Can anyone link me to someone familiar with birds to help me figure if this diamond dove is male or female? The eyering is to the point of EITHER being a thick female OR a thin male, as for having a “brown tint” on the feathers that would indicate female… not sure.
