Zebra Dove

A new "mute" Zebra DOve I have been keeping since Chinese New Year. He decided to open his mouth or rather his beak last week ;-)
Whew!...... thought I had a mute bird on my hand. Still young though, below 1 year old I was told. Finally patience paid off. Just wanted to try keeping young birds. This one that is yet to be named, has a deformed leg that cannot grab the perch properly.

Seems like only a deformed bird will last longer with me. Something to do with not many people wanting to keep them ;-)
But being a dove, bodily feature is not that important.

The background sound is that of a local Spotted Dove.
