Gran has a dove staying at her house at the moment. Uncle Andrew nursed him back to health when he was abandoned when he was very young. He is very tame and likes to fly round the house or sit on Uncle Andrew’s shoulder or head.
His name is Budge and thinks Uncle Andrew is his mum, I am not sure if Uncle Andrew fed him with worms from his mouth to encourage him to eat when he was a fledgling , I must ask him.
I like to sit very quietly near his cage and sometimes he coooo’s to me.
I don’t like to move too much for fear of frightening him …
I would hate to think he thought I was a predator, I don’t think doves encounter many monkeys in “real life”
