THE BIRD [facebook.com]


in order to understand this story you must read parts 1, 2 and 3… check the links below, after the photos… || At the end of part 3 we saw that there were 2 birds that came out of that one egg… but then the doves, that had been sitting on the egg, left! Upon returning from that hot weekend one of the twins was dead. What could be done to feed such tiny creatures? Anyway, water and crackers were provided… but these were hard times.

… but then other doves came to the veranda and certainly “helped” out by eating the food.

… since there was no knowledge about which species this was, I tried different kinds of bird food…

… and the veranda turned into the city doves favorite hang out!

… but i think this little creature ended up eating some of the food because he was growing fast :)

Ironically, I found a tiny bird yesterday and did not know what to do. I decided to climb the tree and put it back in the nest. Not sure what the end result will be.

Great post!

Nice photographic documentary! They are such precious little creatures, but their lives at this stage are very precarious, too! Hoping he lives to love you!

I looked on the facebook to see the rest, but what actually happened in the end? Did he end up big and friendly to you?

Have you tried feeding it worms or insects? It would be what the parents would probably give it? YOu can get mealworms at pet shops, they are full of live amino-acids and good things for young birds like those. Ohh... You are brave! I hope it is healthy and survives... Much strength and life to it! You may end up with a bird friend!
