Two Eurasian Collared Dove hatchlings having breakfast. They hatched five days ago and will be big enough to leave the nest in about ten more days.

The one on the left is a real pig. Great video Mr Wells. They are growing so fast.

Lovely. I was so tired last night that I did not watch the video until now (air conditioning work yesterday which no one talks about and had to tend constantly to barking spoiled dogs and the inquisitive cats. Everyone is sleeping today or roaming the yard and happy). Ten days is not too long. Maybe the one on the left will be a big boy. Isn't that the father feeding them? I wonder what kind of food the father is eating? I DNA tested a rescue dog. He is 40% German Shepherd, 30% Louisiana Catahoula (a real barking, agitating herder of my big Pointer and also top Great Dane) and 30% unknown. I finally came to the realization that I think he could have some Red Wolf (endangered and red color and same markings and body size and some Catahoulas were mixed with them). He is gentle and aloof and likes to be outside and stays in yard but fast runner. The Vets like him and say he is a fine athlete. I took him because he looked like a Shepherd and his eyes were so pleading. (I love wolves and had two in Alaska but not allowed here). Then for awhile I wondered what was wrong with me. Now I understand him better. So I am treating him more like a wolf even tho he is a prized Catahoula and a smart, alert, warning Shepherd. He even used to alert me to the deer passing by.

So the question is: does the smaller chick survive? Or will the first-born outcompete or peck it to death? Might depend on whether the parents are able to find enough food for both. We may be in for a ghastly little drama coming up. It's Nature's way.

No, John might put some bird food out and the story will have a happy ending. Why not? I just watched a long movie about some young women who found their biological fathers from donors. In the end, one girl said in a way that her legal father who reared her was her family father (she knew him). But both girls were so like their biological fathers in looks, interests and personalities. Well I said my parents had switched me at birth and after DNA, sadly after they died, I learned indeed they were my actual biological parents. So I can be proud of my relatives and their struggles. I learned I am Sweedish and Irish and both fibbed because of stigmas and told me I am all English (not true). When I recently visited WVA an old Applachian woman yelled I am a Nigger, the old name for Irish in N.Y. The craziness of life. (And the hidden drug usage and alcohol of my parents in the Military which affects families and runs in my DNA). I tried to follow the Church.
