Winter Light

By Lynniesefforts  
Another few from last winter, it is amazing what you find lurking in your computer !!! I love the winter light.
This is the Spotted Dove, such a sweetheart and so pretty. She is sitting in my leaf bare apple tree.
V4 is the Red Wattle bird.

Spotted Dove, taken from Birds in Backyards.
Spotted Doves are mostly light brown above, with darker centres to the feathers of the back and wings. The head is grey, and the neck and underparts are grey-brown, tinged with pink. In flight the white-tipped tail is clearly seen. The distinguishing feature is the large black collar on the base of the hind-neck, which has many white spots. Sexes are similar in plumage. Young Spotted Doves are similar to adults, but have a mostly dark grey collar instead of black and white..
Where does it live?
The Spotted Dove is native to eastern Asia. It was introduced into Australia in the mid-1800s and early 1900s and quickly became established. It is now a common sight throughout eastern Australia, and around the major towns and cities in southern and south-western Australia.

The Spotted Dove is common around human habitation and can easily be seen in parks, gardens and agricultural areas.

Seasonal movements:
Some birds stay in the same area all year round, while others move around local areas.

Thank you so much for all comments and clicks on my last upload the Paddling Pee Wee, I was surprised by the wonderful response!! I was even more surprised to received highly valued UAs from Bzox ( Zoran), Mollycat (Peter) and BIGRY1 ( Ryan)
Thank you so so much, these awards are truly treasured!!!!!
