There are a few Mourning Doves that live here in the yards. I sometimes stumble upon a small group of maybe five or six when I am out walking in my large yard. They also like to perch on the peak of the roof of my house. This sometimes reminds me of a few of the homes in Solvang, CA which have a Danish design with a stork carving on the roof. I like hearing the coos of the various doves here. These doves eat seeds. They are too large to eat from the bird feeder and sometimes stand under that feeder to catch the dropped Sunflower Seeds. I took these pictures in my yard during hte last two weeks. Please click on the thumbnail image to see the larger picture. Enjoy!
