A Visitor To My Yard

This picture is form Wickapedia,but I can not get a good picture of my little visitor in the rain with my little camera. My friend has been here for about a week at first I thought it was hurt.but it got up from the patio and started to eat the bird seed then it flew up to the fence. I know it is a Morning Dove although I have never seen one here before.There is only the one I think it is lost.

I love Morning Doves. Nice to have them around, their song is so soothing.

What a wonderful little photo of an interesting bird. I haven't seen these little guys around here... I am glad it's eating the bird seed to keep strong if it is indeed lost.

Mourning Doves are so photogenic. We have lots here, and they visit my feeders every day. They have already started laying eggs.

That is neat, Betty, that you have a Mourning Dove there. We have lots of them year-round. They love to eat off of the ground ---everything that the other birds drop!!!!

Thanks for visiting my blog.. Come back anytime.
