Jennie caught a dove

07:11 Saturday 30 June 2018 JST

Jennie caught a dove soon after I let her outside at 4am this morning. Fortunately it was uninjured. After kicking her out of the room, and slow chasing it around the room for a bit, I got the idea to drop a cotton T-shirt on the bird. He chilled out and then actually did not instantly fly away when he was able to.

He stood on the balcony for about half a minute (30 seconds, not half of one of these newly defined minutes) and then flew away.

I’m really happy he could fly.
