I don't try to be like a real floral arranger, just bring in some of the bounty for us to enjoy.
We have a small family of doves on our yard this year, and we're enjoying them a lot. These are "mourning doves" so they have just one song to sing. They repeat over and over: "Coooo--coooo,---coo,coo" Two long drawn out syllables and then two short ones. Sometimes the call is preceded by a quick little, two-note "coo" on an upward minor third. I don't know about other types of doves. These are the two young ones we've seen around. And now I know why doves are a symbol of peace: they are so calm. I took this photo from about 16 feet away. If I approach too close for comfort, they just get up and walk away. Such a contrast with the screechy blackbirds!
One summer afternoon a few years ago Jim and I were sitting in the shade of the backdoor patio and a rock dove, or domestic pigeon, came walking up the gravel driveway. It ignored us as we sat quietly watching it walk here and there and finally flew off. It was a treat to see that beautiful bird. Too bad I didn't have my camera in hand.
