A new adventure...


Little Miss Greenpeace is always on the lookout for little birds and nests and she knows exactly who is breading where and what and how many...


We've had a little dove breading in a nearby tree. She built a really small nest last breading season and she miraculously had one little chick survive this dangerous home. Let me tell you, she can hardly sit on that nest there is not enough room for much more than herself. So this time round she had two eggs and we came up with a rescue plan...


A fishing net will do great to protect a little one from a potential fall...
There was no wind during the night, so we didn't expect to find a little castaway the very next morning!

The tiniest little quivering baby dove were safely caught. Now what!? We took it inside because there was no way we would jeopardise the other little chick by putting this one back into the nest.
Then we started to realize that the mother might have kicked this little one out of the already too small nest. It was really tiny and weak, and not responding too well.


Fortunately we still had our infra red light from raising day old chickens a while ago!


So we gave it some heat, a little bit of food and lots of love and prayers...
That all happened yesterday...
