This is a week-old baby dove that we found in my in-laws’ backyard! I think he’s an Inca dove, because of his mom’s size (about the length of my palm, from my wrist to the tip of my middle finger) and the dark outlines on their feathers (this little guy’s are more obvious because he just fledged a couple of days ago).
Isn’t he cute? And so chubby? He takes up the entire nest on his own, haha. c: (And we’re pretty sure that mama dove is using a nest that was already there, probably built by a towhee, because it’s a really nice nest and doves are crap at building nests. XD)
JESUS JUST LOOK AT THIS CUTIE
