ECC Gives Mourning Doves Something to Be Happy About!

When people think of New York City, they don’t think of wild animals.  Yet many species of wild animals make a life for themselves here, eking out a living among the concrete, cars, noise and people.  Unfortunately, because of the close contact wild beings and humans have in NYC, wild animals of all sorts often find themselves injured, orphaned or otherwise endangered.  Empty Cages Collective has been called upon to assist wild animals who have been hit by cars, injured from human litter, poisoned, and otherwise harmed by human carelessness and indifference.  Two of the species ECC has been called upon to help repeatedly are pigeons and their smaller cousins, mourning doves.

ECC is in the works of becoming a federally and state licensed wildlife rehabilitation organization so we can be of more service to urban wildlife in New York City.   Mourning doves in the 5 boroughs have something to be a little less sad about!

The same dove a few weeks later gets a meal of seeds as he gets closer to being released back into the wild!
