~ The Saga Continues ~



Remember that little baby bird I saved last year? Well I actually released it two months ago and I have not seen it since.........until last week! Can you believe this. I went outside to sit in the sun and dry my hair and I started calling it's name [lucky] like I did every other day since I let him go. And out of a tree flew down a bird....and sat on my lap! I kid you not. It was "Lucky", my baby bird! I screamed to my husband to get the camera...and here are the shots he took. After about half an hour he/she flew away again. I have to say this is one of the most amazing experiences I have had. I felt like crying with happiness . He survived!

  7. Isn't that something?! I tried to rescue two baby morning doves who's mother had been killed by our cat when I was about 20. They only lived for ten days or so. It's amazing that you not only saved him but now he comes back for visits. Wow!

  8. Dear Simone...that is totally awesome..& to actually fly down & sit on your lap like that..
    IT KNEW YOU HAD SAVED him/her..

    I used to feed a family of magpies on my balcony...I would call out across the road in some silly voice & they would ALL come up to me straight away....I felt the same...I LOVED them & their beautiful singing ...
    AND feeding out of my hand..peeping in through the windows to see what was going on..
    (sadly I had to stop feeding them as they were doing far too much poop which was staining my balcony railing etc)...

  9. Oh, Simone, what a beautiful story, and I believe it, of course. Birds have this thing called 'imprinting', they recognize as mother the first animal/human face they see. I don't know well your story with that pidgeon, but I supposse that was the explaination. Konrad Lorenz, novel prize in animal psicology, wrote about this genetic print in birds. He was 'the father' of a lot of geese and ganders, that returned his home every year for a long time.
    I hope you can understand my really forgotten english.
    You have a nice blog. I usually visit you, but this is the first time I comment.
    Lots of regards.

  27. oh my gosh! i would have screamed for a camera too! didn't you just feel so amazed at the connection? wow. the only thing that comes close to me for that is a chipmunk that lives around my house that i recently saw with a bloody nose. i was sitting on my front step and he came around the corner, ran away after seeing me then when i called him he came within inches of me, just looking at me with this hurt little nose. then listened to my consoling tone for a while then ran off again. i swear, the animals, they know things :)

  32. that's so awesome :)

    I saved a dove once. I named her Soap. She was an adult, though. I found some boys kicking her, and scooped her up gave them a tongue lashing they would never forget and then took her home. She was mostly just stunned... after three days or so she was ready to go. It was rewarding watching her fly up into the tree in my backyard :)

  49. That is truly amazing! You must have a gift with the wildlife. A mourning dove, isn't it? One of my favorite birds. They walk about a little gawky-like, but seem to have an elegance to them I just adore. Yes, I remember this event. What a remarkable think to happen.
