Default Lucky... (not for the squeamish!)

... VERY lucky. I'll let you try to figure out what this dove escaped from. But, offhand, I'd say it was a VERY close call! The injury and lack of feathers doesn't seem to affect flight nor appetite. While I can't say for certain, it *appears* the skin is missing from the skull.

I wonder how it will look in a couple months if you happen to see it again. It hope it will survive.
