This makes me so happy- the doves and pigeons get their day sometimes!

Now that's a real success story!

thanks for giving these birds a good home and a BIG HUG to all of you that loved and cared for them!!!

that is very sweet!

Super!

Cute

This makes me very happy. I saw those doves while out at the aviary two weeks ago and I wanted to bring them all home. They aren't as fancy as the hookbills and they don't talk, but they bring a peaceful message.....
