I’ve had this lovely injured wild dove since Sunday. She’s doing really well with no obvious injuries but her right wing is a bit sore and weak. She initially had a bloody nostril and was dazed.
She attempts to fly, stretches and preens both wings happily so nothing is broken. I’m hoping a few more days rest will help but we have a dog and two cats who would love to eat her and no where safe except a boring box in the office.
Does anyone have an aviary she can recuperate in? She doesn’t have any mites and otherwise seems in perfect health, eating, drinking, etc.
If you can help I’m happy to deliver her and pick her up to release her back to her home at the Castlewold Drive duck pond.
