This dove, named Perma-dove, has or had been at the Center for Wildlife for at least 10 years. He or she was brought in by someone who'd raised him? (I'll assume since he always seemed to romance what we assumed were girl birds.) from a baby. Too tame to be released. So for 10 years Perma was company for many incoming and outgoing birds. Now he has arthritis and so when I turned in my squirrels, I came home with him! He coos while I work at the computer. He coos when it's morning. He coos to birds outside the window. He coos when I coo. Already, we are soulmates.
