Our Baby Dove

Here is a picture of our new little friend. This baby dove fell out of our neighbor's pine tree into our backyard. On Midsummer's Eve, he shielded himself under our sweet apple tree. He was very friendly and let us get quite close to him to take pictures and to coo endearments to him. His mother, ever vigilante, watched him from the roof of our house. Eventually, she was brave enough to hop down into our vegetable garden and to call encouragements to him to join her. We watched her feed him and teach him to fly a little, but he still enjoys sitting under our apple tree.

Isn't he precious?

Hi Elizabeth, and welcome to the world of blogging. You will meet so many nice people. Your daughter has a precious blog.
The little dove looks like he is getting plenty to eat. I think he should think long and hard before taking off and leaving the nest.
Have a Blessed Day,
