Two Turtle Doves

Captured these doves hangng out on my deck. They are very shy and hard to photograph. I was behind my patio doors with the camera.

If you look closely you can see (to the far left) on the deck railing is a few sunflower seeds. They love seeds and they are primarily seed eaters, not insect eaters like many birds. 

Did you know that turtle dove is another name for mourning dove? I love hearing their soft sounds they make. When they lay eggs, it is almost always just two. Incubation takes just two weeks.

And these doves usually mate for life. Amazing to know that about these beautiful birds. If you ever see two doves, think about that. They have married for life.

Enjoy nature photography. Amateur self-taught photographer and love every minute of the photos from my yard and Dustin's garden. Sunset views from my deck are very peaceful to watch, capture and share. I have two cats, Brendel and the Dude. I share both special and funny moments I capture of them with you.

Also enjoy seeing and reading your posts from all over the world.
