I found a wedding dove who was released and lost near my home in Inwood (UWS). The Wild Bird Fund helped me to rehabilitate my bird and I adopted her. Ariel has been a wonderful companion for the past 2 years. Recently, I have found other wedding doves who also were diorientated and unable to survive without food. I have been adopting and releasing them. Thank you.
