Katy -- Sacramento

This beautiful white bird has been living in my very large Deodara Cedar trees for about six week. Is it a dove? A pigeon?


The bird is about 12" head to tail, has fairly meaty legs and about a 2' wingspan. It flutters like a dove from tree to tree, and loves dove food.

Very friendly, cautious with my dogs.

Is there a platform we can build for it in the tree? What can we do to make her feel safer and more at home in our yard?
