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!!!!!
Update on Noah the pigeon: We are Bob and Georganne Lenham of Wild Rose
Rescue Ranch in Texas , home of Noah the Pigeon.
many posts online featuring Noah and the bunnies and reading about the many
lives he has touched (his story has been forwarded around the world) we
thought we'd post a follow-up and a few new photos.
We knew there was
something special about Noah the moment we saw him.
Although the bunnies
seem to be his favorite, Noah helps out with many rescue babies here at the
Wild Rose Rescue Ranch....

and ready for release.

Now, Noah helps out with many rescue babies
here at the ranch...
How wonderful it is to have a full-time
soft-feathered nurturer here at the rescue ranch! He cuddles with all the
babies as they snuggle under his warm feathers...and he "coos" as if singing
them to sleep with a lullaby.
Noah is truly, truly a God-send.
will cover you with His feathers
And under His wings you will find
