Treble – He is such a loving bird. He thinks he is a Lorikeet, acts like a dog (follows me around the house and sits at my feet) and he purrs like a cat!

Treble - the Australian Native Dove

Treble is probably a week old now. It fell out of our hedge when we were pruning. We attempted several times over the next 24 hours to return Treble and her sibling to her parents. Unfortunately her (or his) sibling died. At hat stage we decided to hand raise the dove. My grandson named her “Treble.”

These photos are of Treble as she starts to grow up. She is quite a loving bird and likes to snuggle behind our heads while we watch TV in the evenings. She loves to play outside. Sometimes the other male pigeons attack her, then we let her play in the large aviary. She nibbles at seeds and dry Lorikeet food.
