One cold icy day, Josiah glanced out the window and saw a group of turtle doves huddled around the steps and up near our garage door. So he went out into the garage, possessed himself of some seeds, and slowly opened the door. One of the little birds curiosity was aroused and it began to slowly bob its way into the garage. It pecked happily at the seeds and at Josiah's boot and was only vaguely surprised to find itself being picked up and carried indoors.
We all exclaimed over and very gently petted our little wild visitor. Then Faith held it a while to warm it up nice and toasty before Josiah let it back outside to its friends. It was lovely to be able to hold one of Gods wild chickens and we enjoyed it very much.
