I am happy to report that the baby dove (just calling her ‘peep’ for now) is doing well. She immediately took to the feeding syringe – thanks to the internet. We changed the rubber glove finger tip to a latex glove finger tip. It is softer and the baby beak has more freedom to get to the food. We have to get a better baby bird feed. What we are mixing is clumpy and dries out – not very smooth in consistency. Checked online and they sell baby bird feed so I will go to the pet shop and find out.
