Chasing The Dou Dou Mournful Sound Of The Dove
My family is sure that I have really lost it now! The other day, over the loud singing of the Borders, Staffords, and Colorbred of the couple hundred birds in my aviary, I distinctly heard the beautiful deep dou dou dou sound like a mournful dove. Again dou dou dou, enough to take my breath and then nothing more... Who sang that??
Now the quest began, the beautiful sound is stuck in my head, I absolutely must find that bird. In search, I frantically began caging up German Rollers and bringing a few (they think it is a lot) of birds into the kitchen and listening to them for 30 minute sessions, in hopes of finding that one bird which I heard!
It has been a week now and I have found some good birds, birds that have gotten much better then I realized since show season and Christmas caroling but alas no dou dou dou...
My family thinks I need a break from this Impossible Dream Like Journey and so we all off this weekend to Lawrence Kansas to See the Jayhawks play basketball. Go Hawks!!
