DeeDee the dove expresses gratitude

Here is DeeDee, when I saw her last.  She was just a couple of months old, and ready to become independent.  She is a California mourning dove, and the sweetest bird I ever knew.

Dr. Tae Yun Kim‘s home in California was a great place for little birds to grow up in.  Here is a picture of DeeDee when she was just a tiny hatchling:

Dr. Tae Yun Kim loves animals of all kinds, and is especially fond of birds, and makes sure they have a safe haven on her estate.

Momma Dottie is watching out and knows that this huge thing with the camera in hand is just me and is no harm to her or her young ones.  In fact she knows I protect them from the ever-present crows.

Here is DeeDee almost grown up, already Dottie had put her out of the nest but still kept coming back to make sure she’s safe and to feed her.

Dr. Tae Yun Kim has always reminded me how beautiful animals are and how they express their gratitude.

The day DeeDee was ready to leave for good, she hung around the house closer than usual.  She made sure she saw me, and I saw her.  And this was not imagination running wild.  DeeDee really did wait until I saw her.  She looked at me for a long time and let me come real close.  I almost heard her tell me that she was happy for her beautiful childhood her and so grateful we watched over her and kept chasing the crows away.

Dee Dee good bye

Finally, as all birds must do, she knew it was time to start her very own life journey, and she flew away.  She circled a few times very close, and then disappeared into the big oak trees.

Yes, I had a tear or two….as always when a baby leaves.
