According to the Internet site All About Birds, the Mourning Dove is a graceful, slender-tailed, small-headed dove that’s common across the continent. Mourning Doves perch on telephone wires and forage for seeds on the ground. Hmmm....maybe I should have a talk with the ones that live in my backyard. It makes no difference how much seed we leave on the ground this is how we see them more often.
Last Monday I sat watching them fly up and down from the feeder. I decided to see if I could get any in flight. For new readers please know I shoot through my double paned sunroom window so sharpness is an issue. Once I saw in my viewfinder I had caught this one in flight I kept shooting. The following images were some of my better captures.
