from Wildlife Rescue Hospital in Melbourne, Australia

Pigeons and Bunnies Oh My!

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 that we have here in rehab. Noah kept going over to the bunny cage and looking in...even sleeping in front of the door to the cage.

Then, 2 days ago, I only counted 2 bunnies in the cage, so I hurriedly picked Noah up from the front of the cage so I could look inside. And to my surprise...there was the tiny bunny...under Noah's wing...sound asleep! The bunny had crawled through the cage....preferring a featherbed, no doubt.

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

'He will cover you with His feathers, And under His wings you will find refuge.'
Psalm 91:4


  1. This is wonderful - I read about this before - but I had not seen the photos!
    Hope they have all grown up safely now - and still with Noah?

  2. This is the sweetest story. And I love the reminder from Psalm 91:4. Thank you for sharing it.
