Mourning Dove

This sweet little guy was napping outside my window...
As I watched I noticed his tail looked a little funny... Could it be that...hey...yes... There are two! LOL!
They looked right at me! Do you think they heard the camera
shutter? Sorry birds! Go back to sleep!

  21. Gawd we have doves very similar if not the same. I was looking after my sister's chickens a few weeks ago and noticed two had found their way into the pen through the cyclone wire. In an attempt to rescue one I caught it between my palms and promptly pulled out all it's tail feathers. Poor thing, recovering but flying a bit squiffy.
