Little Peachy on a recent scorching hot Summer's day

On a recent scorching hot Summer's day, little Peachy was huddled on a beachfront with ragged tail feathers and no parent anywhere in sight. He offered no resistance when scooped into my hands.

This Barbary Dove is thriving at the shelter having indoor and outdoor time. He enjoys being syringe fed Neocare baby bird feed and is beginning to pick up the odd seed himself.

Once he's eating independently and flying confidently, he will be ready for release. How we love a happy ending...
