A Joy to Watch: Spotted Dove

As I’ve mentioned before, a bonus of keeping Albert and Victoria (a pair of budgerigars) is the delight of seeing Spotted Doves (and occasionally, other birds) pecking their leftovers. The wild birds have discovered that I always tip the seed into a couple of disused flower-pots which are placed so that one can keep an eye on them. So often, when Ron or I look through the window, we see these charming, gentle birds at lunch.

Enjoy!

A Welcome Visitor: A 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.

Enjoy!
