This faithful pair of mourning doves has been visiting us for years during spring and summer. They usually fly in, waddle over to where the bird feeders are, in hopes of finding some morsels other birds might have dropped. After that, they always head over to the sunniest spot in the yard where they then hang out together. As long as I move slowly, and pretend not to be a human, they seem okay with me approaching them. Holding the camera directly in front of my face seems to help disguise me! 😉
They’re quite striking with their blue eye rings and rump feathers.
I just hope one day they’ll bring a baby or two!
