We were able to release a mourning dove this weekend after being with Dane County Humane Societys Four Lakes Wildlife Center for several months. We dont know how it happened, but when he came in, he was missing all his flight feathers on his left wing which meant he could not fly. We always hope the best for our patients but dont often get any information on them after release. This bird was banded with a federal bird band before release and the day after release, he was photographed with a GoPro camera at a feeding station with a large group of other doves! Finding both food and friends are great signs that he is going to do well!
