Turtle Dove Chick
This little dove chick was blown out of the nest when a dust devil came through our yard. For those of you who might not know, a dust devil is a strong, well formed whirlwind. They form as a swirling updraft on sunny days. They look like a mini tornado but are rarely as strong as one.
It tried to climb back up the tree because it was too young to fly.
The parent birds were feeding it and moved it to a juniper bush. What happened to it after that I don't know.
