A Dove’s plight

This little Dove was brought into the sanctuary by a kind lady who saved her from certain death.

Three were released from an event. Two were killed within a short space of time.

These birds are not capable of surviving in the wild. They are easy prey for Hawks, and because they have no strength to sustain flight, when released, they get killed on the road or by other predators.

I have named her Angeni which means spirit. After being able to gain strength in the flight room, she is now able to fly without getting breathless and has much more control when judging direction and landing.

Her favourite place now is by a window in the flight room where she sits and “talks” to her own reflection.
