I don’t know what was in the birdseed that this dove ate, but I suspect it was caffeine.
After mystifying his audience with an abundance of jumping the dove took off at warp speed, leaving a mini-snowstorm in his wake.
In my official capacity as a judge of squirrel jumping, I’ve seen many jumps and I would give this leap very high marks. I would like to see the front legs a little straighter, but other judges consider this acceptable so I’ll let it slide.
I did want to address the minor violation…accessories are not allowed in jumping contests and the peanut falls into that category. However… this was such an audacious bit of flair that I added a point.
