Doves are rare around here. Was pleased to see one here and there but no photo opportunity. Well I just discovered where a few doves meet, so after this snap one may expect a good image or two.

A wonderful Collared Dove Tony, they pair for life and you normally see two together, we have a pair visit our garden up to five times a day, they now have a young one with them, the eyes are so beautiful.

Regards

Trev.

Thank you for the click and comment. Yes Ali, their sound is soothing music. I thought there were little owls around when they first began to show up here until I saw one. They were very distant in tops of trees. Thanks for this British import. There is another wild golden dove three times the size with a looong neck in the mountains here. Only saw that one twice so far. TG

Great capture tony! Doves are such a beautiful bird. I love the sound their wings make when they fly away.

Lots of Collared Doves over here TG - farmers shoot them as pests....we have a pair in the garden, great looking animals.

Thanks.. Sorry to hear that farmers shoot collard doves as pests. Guess as with starlings, success can breed contempt. Too bad. Just the cycles of nature. TG
