We have had several stories about one species of animals protecting another. Here is yet another, and they still continue to amaze me!

This is one special bird.

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/rock dove that is in the rehab centre. Noah kept going over to the bunny cage and looking in -- even sleeping in front of the door to the cage.

Then, suddenly, there were only two bunnies in the cage. But when Noah moved a bit from the front of the cage to everyone's surprise..there was the tiny bunny......under Noah's wing......sound asleep! That little bunny rabbit had crawled through the cage, preferring a featherbed, no doubt to snuggling up with its littermates!

Now, they are all together and the bunnies are doing GREAT. When the bunnies scoot underneath Noah's feathers, he carefully extends his wings out to surround them and then 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! It is beautiful and amazing to see.

Just wondering ... Remember those cartoons that show a bunch of cannibals cooking someone in a big pot? Ever wonder where they got the big pot? Order it through Google? Any suggestions?
