Default Coolest thing I've ever seen

Pulled in the driveway from work today and there is a wild (well not very wild) whitewing dove sitting on my daughter's head. When I pulled in it flew off. I came in the house and she said she was going to stay outside for a little while. About 10 minutes later she called me and he was back, this time on her arm. He did this 3 different times.

Cool

When my son was about 4 there was some kind of black bird about the size of a starling (but it was not) that would fly down and land on him when he was outside for a couple of days

Never did figure out what kind of bird it was

Nope, you just pluck the head right off and put it in your bag.

Put him in a cage at home and tie him to a stake you his leg when I hunt is what I’d do! The most he could do is fly in a circle!

Could be a rescue that got used to being around people then released when it healed up

Itís because kids donít smell like a human anymore when theyíre left outside for a couple of days...
