Doves ~ Saturday's Critters

Mourning doves are beautiful. I see them a lot in my backyard. The sound, a short coo sound they make is always easily recognizable. You always knows when they are around. I captured these two in my backyard Poplar tree right at sunset a few days ago.

You can see Mourning Doves nearly anywhere except the deep woods. Look for them in fields or patches of bare ground, or on overhead perches like telephone wires.

  1. I love birds and I love feeding them if I can. Unfortunately, in some places like Australia, it is prohibited to feed the birds in the wharf because they are known to attack people who eat in al-fresco areas ?
