These Mourning Doves were spotted in various places around the development here where I live on December 15, 2013 just before and at sunset. These beautiful doves are sometimes seen perched on electric lines or walking around on the ground. They love eating seeds, berries, nuts and fruits. I really enjoy hearing their pleasant cooing.
The group of Mourning Doves roosting in the small tree, was just on the fringe of a dedicated wildlife area out-of-bounds to the public at one side of this development. I took those pictures from the roadway. Please click on the thumbnail image to see the larger picture. Enjoy!
