Hello, this is Dr. Linda. I hope I can help with your question today.
It sounds like you have done a great job. The only thing I might add is to put a light sheet over the box to decrease as much visual stimulation as possible to the bird. Unless you have the air conditioner really cranked up, I also do not see the need to keep the bathroom heater on. A quiet, dark environment will keep the bird calm until you can transfer her tomorrow. Try to not peek in on the bird too much, again to keep it calm. There is really not much else to do. You have already helped the dove tremendously, & even if it passes on during the night, at least you gave it a chance.
Thank you for caring.
