Word Bird Wednesday

Time once again for everybody's favorite---Word Bird Wednesday!  You don't have to be an experienced bird watcher or photographer (Thank the LORD) to join in the fun.  All you really need is a love of birds--observing them, photographing them, feeding them, learning about them, sharing them, enjoying them--or just ooohing and ahhhing over the finds of others.  Whatever it is you enjoy about birds, join up with Springman's Word Bird Wednesday at The Pine River Review.  You won't be sorry--unless you miss it.


The Mourning Dove is a daily visitor to our feeders and was included in my count during the Great Backyard Bird Count. They are some of the sweetest birds to frequent the feeders.

I used to think that Mourning Doves were just plain boring birds.I have since changed my mind.They are so beautiful and gentle.I love having them around.

They are stunning. Too many areas are now being taken over by the Eurasian Collared doves, replacing the Mourning Doves.

Great pictures

wonderful captures! I think that mourning doves are such lovely birds -- they can be so common that they are easy to overlook, but its worth stopping to admire their beauty every now and then!
