Camera Critters # 209

The Mourning Doves are welcome visitors to our garden.  We love to leave the door open and hear them cooing.  It is such a peaceful sound.


Thank you Misty for hosting Camera Critters.

They are very pretty. Thank you.

We really enjoy them as well... they are so peaceful looking and have a calming effect on their surroundings... however, they can cause one to jump when they do their take-off from a tree or shrub where one is unaware of their presence... Larry

They are better than a valium pill. Some mornings (before it gets bloody hot here) I just lay in the quiet and hear them through the open windows. So nice. It's like there's nothing wrong in life.

They are sweet birds but unfortunately have the IQ of a flower pot!

They look very like our collared doves, which I like, but as Jane and Chris said, they are not the smartest of birds.

I have always loved their gentleness and hate that people shoot them

They are very like our Collared Doves. I love them, they always seem peaceful and I love the sound of them cooing especially when it floats down the chimney into the house...the sound not the dove! :-)

Wishing you and yours a very Happy Easter Denise.
