My Little Angel is a sweet little white fantail that arrived here a couple of years ago, she was very ill and it took me weeks to pull her back from the brink of death.

In the aviary she kept herself to herself, perching motionless for hours on end. WE started to put a bucket of food in the aviary porchaway so that she could get in it and we could ensure she was getting enough to eat.

Twice she had relapses and had to be coaxed back to health again. This last time we decided that the aviary was too rough for her to return to and that she would have to go into the doviary, with the two wood pigeons . She has been there a short time and has perched companiably next to the woodies.

Meanwhile, John had taken Reg, a large white pigeon that we adopted from a sanctuary, home. He lived at the other end of the aviary and had lost an eye, had a cataract in the remaining eye, had painful legs and was being bullied. While he was away, his mate found a younger pigeon, so we decided to put him into the doviary for safety and as company for My Little Angel.

After a couple of hours I went to check up on them and saw that they had both disappeared into a large sheltered cupboard sized space . When I looked ito that I saw My Little Angel snuggled into Reggie's body, her face was absolutely radiant when she looked up at me! I can honestly say I have never seen such joy on a pigeons face! It has made year!

Wonderful!! I remember when I thought Bernadette was a girl but would never have a mate. He had no interest in other pigeons really. And I thought Buddy was a male, a big ex-racer with a blind eye. Then I brought Bern in over one winter and Buddy in for "just a few nights" and within half an hour they were, ahem, well I'm sure you can guess. :eek::rolleyes: It was certainly love at first sight. I guess they're just waiting for THE ONE! :D:D Now of course we want pictures.

That is amazing, but wondeful and heartwarming. Even with pigeons there must be something that just clicks!

Oh Cynthia that is so good.

My Little Angel has had such a difficult time and you've worked so hard to bring her back to health. Isn't it just the best thing to see her blooming and 'in love' now.
Fate certainly brought about the decision to put them in the doviary, sounds like this was certainly meant to be.

Hope you can sneak a picture sometime. ;)
