A Dove Called Noah

Five little bunnies,  about 6 days old, were attacked by a dog and orphaned. Two out of the litter of five did not survive. The remaining three were not doing very  well. 

Noah is a non-releasable, one-legged homing pigeon/rock dove that is in the rehab centre. Noah kept going over to the bunny cage and looking in . . . even sleeping in front of the door to the cage. Then,  suddenly, there were only two bunnies in the  cage. But when Noah moved a bit from the front of the cage to everyone’s surprise…there was the tiny bunny … under Noah’s wing … sound asleep!

That little bunny rabbit had crawled through the cage, preferring a featherbed, no doubt, to snuggling up with its litter mates!

Now, they are all together and the bunnies are doing GREAT! When the bunnies scoot underneath Noah’s feathers, he carefully extends his wings out to surround them and then they snuggle.When one of them moves and they start sticking out here and there, he gently pushes them back under him with his beak!

It is beautiful and amazing to see. Now, Noah helps out with many rescue babies here at the ranch… How wonderful it is to have a full-time soft-feathered nurturer here at the rescue ranch! He cuddles with all the babies as they snuggle under his warm feathers…and he “coos” as if singing them to sleep with a lullaby.

He will cover you with His feathers and under His wings you will find refuge. Psalm  91:4
