Wildlife: Mourning Dove

This beautiful Mourning Dove sat on the trellis preening for us as though he were alone in the world. He put on quite a show for over 15 minutes, carefully cleaning each feather, smoothing and arranging them just right. He looked so dapper when he was finally done. We got a whole series of photos but we thought this one shows how proud he was.

Thank your for posting these beautiful pictures. Last year a pair of these wonderful birds made a nest in one of my hanging baskets on my balcony. I so enjoyed watching the entire process from eggs to babies, babies learning to fly and the protective parents standing guard over them. They were right outside my bedroom window and I learned to distinguish what their different sounds meant. I loved waking up to the sweet cooring each morning.
