Oh my gosh, I've never EVER seen so many at once. My heart would be ever so joyful I'm sure. 'Cause when I spot one, yes, I said ONE, I'm elated.

Fabulous images.

I have one hanging around our bird feeder.

Fjällripan said...

So many of them! We have a lonely one near the garden and I think he is sounding so sad...in fall they were two but not anymore. He/she is also so afraid to come to the feeder, but in the night I have seen it there :)

Happy easter to you to!

Ellie said...

Oh you have lot of them their - they are so lovely. There is something really elegant about those lovely birds. :)

Lynda said...

They look like they have sweet dispositions. I can hear the coo of a dove just looking at them.

Roan said...

I think I found a Barred Owl. Would you go check it out? Finally a day outside with the camera. It has been a long boring winter. Love these Doves. We've been seeing them around her for a couple of years. At first not very many, now they are plentiful.
