Tekukur (Spotted Dove)

video

Took possession this Spotted Dove today. Supposed to be a good pikat but was retired to the aviary after some wing injury. Anyway, the first thing he did after being tied to his cage is to eat and eat. Hmmmm...... curiously, he must not have been eating properly in the aviary. Hope he settles down soon...... but looking at his body sign, it would be quite fast ;)

Update on the hatched Merbok (Zebra Dove) - first hatchling is doing well, the 2nd egg did hatch but the chick did not survive. They are being fostered by a pair of Tekukur Jawa.
