On sunday, I found an injured native Bar Shouldered Dove in our garden.
It couldn't balance very well. I didn't find any obvious injuries. Poor little thing.
So the dove spent the night in a small basket by the fireside. It was drinking sips of water, so that was a good sign. The next day, I took it in to the vets. The dove overnighted there in good hands. I rang them the next day to see how the dove was doing. They said it had improved slightly and a carer was going to take it to the nearby Australia Zoo's hospital for recovery.
So I hope to see the little dove again. If all goes well, it will be released back here, to be reunited with all it's little mates. I often see a gang of them in our leafy driveway.
