What art style is loved by doves?
The Coo-bist Period.
Interesting Fact: During the breeding season, you might see three Mourning Doves flying in tight formation, one after another. This is a form of social display. Typically the bird in the lead is the male of a mated pair. The second bird is an unmated male chasing his rival from the area where he hopes to nest. The third is the female of the mated pair, which seems to go along for the ride. ( http://www.allaboutbirds.org/guide/Mourning_Dove/lifehistory )
Now Prince is stuck in my head! 🙂
Haha. Sorry. Thank for stopping by. 🙂
Don’t be sorry, there are way worse songs to have stuck in there 🙂
That is very true. 🙂
Mourning Doves are my favorite birds. That song is also one of my favorites! Beautiful capture!
Thank you very much, it makes me very happy to see that you enjoy my work. 🙂
My neighborhood is full of these babies.
I look forward to your photos every day.
That is really cool, thank you very much, I am very happy to see that you enjoy my work. 🙂
Lovely photo with really crisp details. I have mourning doves in my garden daily but “mine” are rather chubbier than this sleek bird. I think mine must get over-fed. Thanks for the Prince earworm.
Thank you very much, I appreciate you stopping by and sharing with us about your mourning doves. I didn’t expect the Prince song to be that of earworm. 🙂
Never seen a tan coloured dove before…must’ve been sat in the sun! 😀
Haha. I guess so. 🙂
These are some of my favorite birds – I love their cooing and that blue eyeliner is so chic!
Haha very chic! Thank you for stopping by and checking out my work. 🙂
This is the most common bird in some areas in the city I live. I never get sick of their call. Almost owl-like. Keep up the great work!
Thank you very much, it makes me very happy to see that you enjoyed my work. You are right they do have that almost owl-like sound. 😉
Beautiful. The doves in my garden are the friendliest of birds and probably the most gentle.
Every time I see the they just look so peaceful. Thank you very much for stopping by and checking out my work. 🙂
