MET052814 doves close
Safe as can be: A mother mourning dove and her two chicks sit on the front of a car at Thompson’s Honda on South First Street Wednesday afternoon. The mother first chose the hood/windshield of another vehicle. That SUV wasn’t put up for sale until the chicks were old enough to be moved. Thompson’s employees Mike Miner, Kent Crowder and Justin Snapp accomplished the move and mother dove continues caring for her brood of two.
