    About 3:45 am, I woke up to scratches and flapping at the bedroom window. Went out with a flashlight and found this wet ,half frozen dove. She got sub Q fluids dried off and is resting in a towel nest with a heating pad. I'll check on her when I get home from work. :( IMG_20150114_043051542.jpg

    I'm not sure if you have a "thing" for doves or doves have a "thing" for you, but either way I'm glad - you seem to be getting your fair share of birdies in distress to help. :hug8: :hug8: :hug8:

    She didn't make it :( Further inspection showed a large solid mass in her crop. And her poos was scant and yellow. At least she passed warm and safe. :heart:

    Thank you for helping her, it is so hard to get them better because as we all know birds are very good at hiding issues :(
    Something can be learned from every experience even the bad ones, all we can do sometimes is store that knowledge and hope it helps with the next time :)

    It was most probably canker,,we have a problem with that in the desert, especially when there's no rain..rain will kill it. We didn' have too much canker this year coz we had a good amount of rain...thank God!
