A Welcome Visitor: A Spotted Dove

Spotted Dove

One of the bonuses of keeping budgerigars as pets is the attraction their left-over seed has to these sweet creatures.

For days afterwards, whenever I empty the budgies’ seed-dish into the empty flower-pots, one or more Spotted Doves fly in and start scratching for left-overs. They must be rewarded quite well, for usually they keep on coming back, time after time.

    I think I’d throw out the seed even if I didn’t have budgies just to see these pretty little birds come and visit.

      I agree, David 🙂 I discovered their liking for budgie seed quite by accident:)
