Mourning Dove

Mourning Dove

 

 

This Dove is waiting her turn , and looking on as others are enjoying their meal at what I like to call, “The Bird Feeder Cafe”.

I was working away a couple of weeks ago at one of my clients houses. I looked out the kitchen window, and saw this dove on the roof of their shed. I ran and got my camera, opened the door slowly, and quietly, aimed and took this photo. I took a couple more shots, and put my camera away and continued on with my work. I had brought my camera to work with me, and planned to check out her feeders when I was done for the day. By the time I got finished their wasn’t a bird in sight. I waited a little while, and it was starting to get dark so I headed home. I only got a few quick shots that day but I thought this one was a keeper.

 

I hope you all have a wonderful week whatever you do or don’t do.

  1. You must be living at a very peaceful and scenic place to be able to capture so much beauty of nature everywhere you look. I hope the new place you'll be moving to will be just as nice.

    Blessings,

  2. Hi Dianne thank you for your visit , the little Budgie has been with me for almost two years now. He is a little trooper and not so shy as he was when I first brought him here. He is always picking up new words which take me by surprise. The ring neck dove I just love and almost every day I see two close together sitting on the tree by the Pond , kissing I believe so close so cute. I do hope you find a buyer this year for your home , and find a lovely new place with lots of wildlife near by. Take care Hugs Sheilax

  4. I actually love the sound those birds make. I've not heard them much since it's been very cold and icy which keeps me from walking as I used. I can't say how long it's been since I've had a nice walk...I miss it so much. Wonderful picture Dianne!

  11. We have a Mourning Dove that sits in our feeder late in the evening...sometimes for hours. They have such sweet faces and the sound they make is one of my favorites. You caught the personality in your photo!
