From the Dove Archives

Our yard is full of doves. I watch and listen as they amble along our fence, browse beneath the feeders, and coo low love songs from our roof. I follow their nests in our pear tree, in our roses and pansies, and wave goodbye when the fledglings fly away. Do they return, sometimes, when they are ready for nests of their own?

All these doves in our yard. Do they also watch and listen, wondering where we came from and where we will go?

    Thanks for the ‘like.’ I love your mourning dove photos. Of all the birds that visit the feeder outside my kitchen window, the doves always appear the most curious, bobbing their heads and peering at us from their perches on the deck railing.
