chico, they are so pretty!! I love mourning doves their cooing is so peaceful. We had 2 last year in the garden. And they are back again this year. I've heard them cooing,,,haven't seen them yet, but I know they are in or around our yard some I hope they are snuggled up nice and warm answe got 2 ft of snow dumped on us last night and it is still snowing.

They look so soft and gentle, Chico, and unfortunately we don't have them down here. :(

Melinda,these two were sitting in my Magnolia-tree just outside my bed-room window..
The Mourning-Doves usually make at least one nest in my Blue Spruce in the front,they are kind of dumb,because their nests are usually very visible,hence the eggs or babies get taken:(

GF,Mourning-Doves are very common here,lots of them around,they somehow look very fragile and soft.

That is such a shame, that they don't hide their nests. You are lucky having such a lovely dove, I'd be envious but I got a great sighting today, and didn't even think to grab the camera. Duh! Anyway, by the time I figured what it was, it flew off. A juvenile Crimson Rosella. I've been hearing their bell like chiming call and thinking I couldn't be so lucky. I've only had them here a couple of times in 35 years, they come, they eat all the berries off the Cotoneasters, then are gone.

:highfive: I hope he sticks around for you, GF! Beautiful birds!

Our birds love cotoneaster berries, too!

Nicest sighting I had, and it was a long time ago , was a Mistletoe bird that come down to check out the cotoneaster berries. They're not even as big as a sparrow but you can't miss them.
I have fingers crossed that the rosellas stay for a while. I only ever used to see them on our trips down to dog shows at Hamilton, and those and blue wrens are the two birds I really wished were in our area. No wrens yet. :( Anyway, enough, I shouldn't start chattering about birds on Chico's thread.

when I was out on our deck last week a few doves were doing the "cutesy" cooing and cuddling stuff.

I love their cooing...
