Mourning Dove Couple




















Here is my Mourning Dove couple. They are great parents. I say this because I was trying to snap pictures of their two babies and they shooed their little cuties into the bushes away from my camera. The couple then perched themselves on the fence to keep a watchful eye on me. Okay, okay - I get the hint. But you two make a nice photo.....

They make a wonderful photo. Good for them, protecting their babies from the paparazzi!

I too, think your couple makes the nicest photo. And maybe you'll catch the babies another day. :-)

This is a beautiful portrait of them. They seem like such sweet birds. I like having them around.
