Baby Diamond Dove

If you look closely, you can see the baby bird peeking out from under momma. The slight red cast to the picture is because of the red heat lamp. The baby is just about as big as the adult birds!! But they continue to try to keep it warm and fed. If the other egg had survived, there is no way there would have been room for two. The ring neck dove has one new baby, too. She had one egg that didn't hatch. We are having a cool spell this weekend, the weather has been great and now it is cold!! As soon as it warms up again, I think the parakeets are going out into the outside cage. They are fun to have inside, I like to hear them talk and fuss with each other, but they are just so messy!!!
