Bob The Mourning Dove - Part III

Me: Um Bob, I've noticed quite a few Mourning Doves in the yard today, is something going on?

Bob: Oh, I'm just have a little get together, nothing special.

Me: Okay, but I've had to clean the birdbath 3 times today.

Bob: I'll talk to the other doves about it. Don't worry!





Me: Um Bob, how big is this get together of yours? Bob?!

Do you think have come for a winter long visit? If so, better go buy some more birdseed, and put out a little each day. Mine always eat until they are floundered. They don't understand the meaning of full.

Ha Ha Shelley... I heard Bob say, "I'll poop in that birdbath as much as I want to--AND I'll bring all of my friends too."

Fun post! It reminded me of when I lived out west. We did have mourning doves, but they were pretty rare. In 30 years I think I saw two or three! Then when I moved back here, I was really thrilled to see them again. That lasted about 2 days, then their non-stop cooing started to get on my nerves, and I was just about ready to stick my head out the window and yell Shaddup!! How things change! Hope Bob's friends behave themselves.

Will Bob and his buddies stay all winter? I'm seeing only a couple stragglers in my backyard these days.
