The Morning Dove

The pretty little gal below is in the process of gathering nesting material. If you’ll scroll down to the, A Fiery Western Sky, the post immediately below this one, you’ll see the fir tree where she’s building her nest.  You can’t see the nest but it’s about 2/3’s of the way up the tree.  At the time I shot this she was more interested in what I was doing than gathering her twigs, sticks, and grasses. (Sometimes known as the Turtle Dove.)

  1. A beautiful visitor, Dan. Great shot too. 🙂


  2. Lovely and beautiful contrast with the stones! 🙂


  3. Somehow the title and the picture makes me thing there must be something like a poem about “Morning Doves”.


  4. Awesome! 🙂
    I love the sounds they make and the way they bob their heads! 🙂
