|EGAD! We have a bird! About 3 AM Inky and I were walking around outside to go bedtime potty. Inky pointed out an injured dove. I picked it up and brought it into the light. It doesn't appear to have major injury and can move both wings but cannot fly. I suspect it either fell or was injured by another animal. It stayed over night in a great big bird cage that I have. I put in wild bird seed and a flat container of water and gave it some linen napkins (because the weave is tight so it's feet won't get stuck). It slept in its new linen nest just fine and is perky making tiny noises now and then. I am not sure what to do with it now though. Inky likes birds because we sometimes baby sit and often visit our neighbor's parakeet so he has only taken some observastional interest in this one. It is not legal for me to house it more than overnight but I am reluctant to call authorities because we have long had an entire dove family and I'm sure this is one of the family. I thus, don't want it healed and released elsewhere.
