Good Morning, Lil’ Mourning Dove

These elegant birds are like rural pigeons, but I’m still quite fond of them. Spring is just around the corner, and, if you’ve ever seen Bambi, you know that all the critters come out “twitterpated“, especially the birds.  It’s a time when, every morning, we get to listen to the doves whoo-whoo-ing, watching them do their airial mating dances, loudly flapping their wings as they ascend straight up, then gliding around in a circle to land.  After a few of these dances have taken place, we see two lil’ doves perched side by side.
