Bye Bye Birdie

Look at the weird coloration coming in on our dove babies. The white one has this brown red across the front. There's a fancy dove people pay tons of money for called a bleeding heart, and this dove looks like a low rent version of one.

When I went out to put the chickens away just now, they were up tight against the wall in the bushes. I could pick them up like bowling balls rather than chase them all around the yard like I usually do. Then I looked up at the sky and a hawk was sitting on the wire, just waiting its chance.

Tomorrow I go to New Jersey to visit my mother again. I'll take my laptop along and maybe post from Meford, NJ.

The bleeding heart bird is another J.B. miracle! All hail the squab!
Have a safe trip.
