We have a pair of Diamond Doves that just hatched a clutch of eggs. I took this shot today with my 6T Nikon f2.8, 1/50 sec ASA 100 internal flash and Vivitar 283 slave from the upper left corner.

Great shot! Did you know Diamond Dove chicks make good soup? Here's a recipe...
______________________________________________

Diamond Dove Chick Soup

10 Whole Diamond Dove Chicks
1 gallon water (enough to cover dove chicks)
1 onion cut in quarters
3 garlic cloves
1 inch of ginger root shredded
2 teaspoons salt
1 pound new potatoes
4 large carrots cut in one inch slices
2 stalks celery cut in one inch slices
1 can baby corn

1. Combine diamond dove chicks, water, onion, garlic, ginger, and salt in a large stock pot and bring to a boil. (Crockpot can be used but times are longer)
2. Simmer for 30 minutes to 1 hour skimming off oil and fat as needed.
3. Test diamond dove chicks with a fork to determine when it is tender and fully cooked.
3. Remove the diamond dove chicks and shred them, removing bones, fat, skin, and gristle.
4. Strain broth.
5. Add vegetables and diamond dove chicks to broth and bring to a boil, reduce heat and simmer for 30 minutes or until potatoes are done. Serve hot.

Hey Nick,
The recipe looks good but the proportions are off! Diamond Doves are so small that 10 might make a cup or two of soup - not a gallon. The parents are sparrow sized, that one is about the size of a titmouse (setup for another tasty recipe).
