Mourning Dove

Mourning Dove

Regular visitors to our garden, the Mourning Dove's coo reminds one of someone expressing sadness--as in mourning. They are ground feeders, relatively large and slow moving-- and tend to travel with a mate. We love to see them roosting in the pine trees!

Thank you all for awards, comments and votes for "Street Image!"---- the pony cart entering the covered bridge. The child in his Sunday best black--hat and all--already knows to sit very still while riding with grandma! Glad everyone enjoyed the image!
