Really? When the mourning dove showed up without a tail at the same time the hawk showed up, I was sure the hawk was the cause.
I love the mourning doves. At first glance, they are just a gray-brown bird, nothing exciting, but the more you watch them, the more colours you see. They are usually so shy, it was a real blessing to be able to sit there and just watch these two without scaring them. Given that I was out in the open with no hiding place, seeing them relax enough to preen and search for food was really neat.
