1117,Speaking of M.Doves,one visited my window
ledge this afternoon and chilled there for about
twenty minutes(helping itself to both seeds &
cracked corn!!!)!!! I'am hoping in the future to be
serenaded by a pair of mournful cooers!!! :) D

1117,Terrific Pic!!! Unlike Starlings(they're not even a
native species,some idiot from Europe brought them
across the Pond!!!)I love Mourning Doves,those soul-
ful coos & whistling wingbeats...a couple visited my
feeders and window ledge frequently but I haven't
seen them for a number of years... :( !!! D-bert

I loooooove the wing beat. I think my resident doves (I have two pair) are even getting a bit used to me. They were always so shy and now they don't fly away as soon as they see me. Yay! I read that these guys are usually a nuisance at feeders, but I don't see it. All they do is hang out on the ground and eat what has dropped. I have no problems with that!

I hope yours come back. They really are a pleasure to have a quite the "hidden" beauty.
