Patient of the Week

Every day new patients arrive at our facility. In an effort to tell their story of survival and highlight the diverse number of species that we rehabilitate, we highlight a new patient each week. Some of these are individuals, others are orphaned siblings. As their cases progress - we will update the outcome - our hope is that many, many of these patients are released!

Baby Rock Dove

By Sarvey Wildlife / Monday, February 1, 2016 /

Baby Rock dove - this little guy is a juvenile rock dove that came in on 1/21 from the Seattle area. While our "baby season" is still several weeks off (we hope!!) it is not unusual for us to see these young rock doves all year round.

These birds breed all year, not just in the spring/summer. Sadly, this one was in an area where the nest was disturbed and mom was scared away. It was only a day or two away from going with her. If you find nests in areas you don't want these birds to roost, wait for them to fly off with their young before removing the nests and putting up any deterrents to keep them away.

This guy had nutritional issues but is improving. We also had another adult rock dove arrive, so now this "baby" has a surrogate family. Status – released.
