~ Still Growing ~

" I can't seem to stop growing....."
Another week or growing and feeding. My sweet little Dove has started to try to fly and is beginning to need fewer feedings..... I can't wait for the colors to finish, but for now he or she is ruddy but beautiful. My mother generously donated an awesome old shabby wire cage so I will fix it up so he has a cozy little home. Painting is slow and we have had alot of rain-but I am not complaining. We are now in August so you know what that means-school is just around the corner-followed by Christmas, but who's rushing......


  1. Oooh, I have been watching patiently for another photo of your little dove, how precious! Does she have a name? We call the two we pass on our morning Nature walk each day Lovey and Dovey...I just want to hold her and kiss her!

  2. I am so happy she will make it! Good job ciao Rita

  3. Your mourning dove (or whatever kind she is, lol!) is a sweetheart. Yes, August is here and Christmas is just around the corner. We actually bought some presents for family today .... taking advantage of sale price, too!
    Have a super week!

  4. Ohhhhh, how sweet. Looks healthy & ready to nearly go her own way. TTFN ~Marydon

  5. Sweet bird.She will make it.
    August is here and my holiday start!
    Have a lovely week!

  6. just found you a hurry, but will stop back ... i dream in cream, too

  7. The dove is so sweet...I do not think it will want to leave you. I love your blog and your pix are always so beautiful.... Have a nice week. Sandi

  8. Good Morning
    So happy your dove is looking so good and almost ready to fly away...she might want to stick around if she doesn't get chased off. Have a great day

  9. I can't over how he has grown! He is just beautiful!



  10. You are going to miss him, aren't you? How fun it is to watch him growing! ~Mindy

  11. Oh my God, I can't believe how big she or he is getting. Pleasantly plump! I don't think that bird is going to be that well fed in the wild. You certainly are doing amazing job.

    See ya in awhile-

  12. You have a lovely blog. Loved to know that you're taking care of the bird. We also do that when they fall from the nest too soon. May it grow strong and healthy.
    Have a great week

  13. Your dove is wonderful!!
    (you know how i love birds).
    I'm sure she is in good hands and will soon, 'fly the coop' as it should be.

    Hope you are not an award free person, as i have given you one.
