hey guys, I had to share this with all of you after I received this today- too cool and quite amazing! We all know how hard it is to save baby bunnies, so read this and see pictures and I hope it brightens your day like it did mine!

I don't know the details of where this came from, my grandma forwarded it on to me because she knows I am bunny crazy and she has become pretty interested after hearing all about Chubs and Comet. Here ya go!

 

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

   Noah is a non-releasable, one-legged homing pigeon that we have here in rehab.  Noah kept going over to the bunny cage and looking in...even sleeping in front of the door to the cage.
 
   Then, 2 days ago, I only counted 2 bunnies in the cage, so I hurriedly picked Noah up from the front of the cage so I could look inside.  And to my surprise...there was the tiny bunny...under Noah's wing...sound asleep!  The bunny had crawled through the cage....preferring a featherbed, no doubt.
 
   Now, they are all together, and the bunnies are doing GREAT.  When the bunnies scoot underneath Noah's feathers, he extends his wings out to surround them...and 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!!!!!  This is amazing!!!

That is amazing! I love hearing those kind of stories where one animal "takes under their wing" (little pun intended!) babies of the complete opposite. Noah is so gentle! It made me awww! Great story! Thank you for sharing, made my day better!

That's absolutely adorable! I've never heard of a bird having such a maternal instinct for members of another species.
