About me

Look closely toward the center

There's a turtle dove sitting on the ground just to the side of the metal plant market. They can be hard to see. They are also hard to get so close to, and I assume this one is injured in some manner. Otherwise, I would have been scared out of a year's growth when it blasted out from under the bush as I turned the corner.

For a moment, I thought about catching the bird, calling wildlife rehabilitation, and leaving it in someone's TLC, but I didn't, leaving it to somehow fend for itself through the evening.

In a flurry of grade school angst, I had a vision of a feral cat dining on fresh turtle dove this evening. Let's hope the bird does better tonight than I did back then.
