wow, it seems that i have had a lot of interaction with birds lately.
today i noticed a dove sitting over two chicks in the grass. i approached, not too close, but enough to notice they had some feathers covering their body. i came back later to check on them and the adult was gone and one of the little uns' got up and walked around.
-my concern is that the area is used for baseball, frisbee, football throwingas well as fairly heavy foot traffic here on campus, not to mention cats or ants. i have raised small birds long ago and wondering if i should raise em' or leave em be.
any suggestions? -thanks
