A pair of doves

A beautiful little pair of ringneck doves who have been returning residents at my neighbors yard, decided to come to my yard for a visit.  I might not have noticed, but they have been cooing...loudly!  Early in the morning... right outside my window.  It's pretty hard to ignore!  They've found a nice, thick, pine branch to perch on, and they look so comfortable there.

 Of course, when I've gone out to see what singing is about, they've flown to the roof of the shed or the overhead power-line.

I didn't hear them this morning, though....hope they come back. I have enjoyed their visit...and their songs!


  1. They are so delicate looking. I saw one of those in the HOme Depot parking lot last week. I'm assuming it's someone pet bird that got loose since we don't usually see them here.

  2. These birds started appearing in town about five years ago. Now, they are commonly seen and heard. Their cooing is relaxing.

  3. awwwww. Such a sweet post. Coo coo coo

  4. I love the cooing...we have two sets of them, one for the front, and one for the back....

    Hope that they return soon.
