The dove's plumage is one of my favorite color palettes.
Oh, the sound of a mourning dove coo is just beautiful, isn't it? Great shots, Tex~
All animals are treated very nice by you :) Love the close ups!Have a beautiful SundayTinna ✐
I love I birds and I believe we have the same in Poland, too
Very beautiful! both doves and photos! :)
They do seem to have good numbers all over.. I have a lot of the doves here too. Great shots.. Enjoy your Sunday and have a happy week ahead!
Thanks for identifying the female Red-Wing...I never would have guessed!...:)JP
They are really beautiful birds to see. In the Netherlands I've never seen one.
Beautiful! I was just telling my husband we need a bird feeder at our new house to keep my dog entertained. We're leaving a house with a pond behind it and there seems to always be something exciting going on back there.
Have a Nce sunday....love Ria ....x!
I don't think I've ever seen so many at once.
Those are lovely doves. They make an interesting sound when they take off, too!
I love doves, they are so gentle and a little on the dumb side.. I love their coos and the way they sit together on the power wires. we only have 2 now, we have a resident hawk and I have yet to get a photo, but he comes every day and our squirrels are gone to. we have not seen a squirrel in about 2 weeks and only 2 doves and a couple of cardinals. i hope the hawk moves on soon.
Our doves must be nesting. We aren't seeing them like we did a couple of weeks ago. Maybe they have moved on. I love hearing them coo. I'd hate to think hawks are picking them off but possible.
I have tons of doves, in fact that's the majority of what I do have. They are a frequent victim of the hawks.
I'm surprised how many different species of animals you feed, and how they pretty much stay separate. Do they come in shifts? The doves leave and here come the whistlers? :-)
They have such an elegant and understated color. With such soft sweet coos... =) Yes, good thing there are plenty for all. blessings ~ tanna
Lovely shots and so enjoy the sounds of these doves outside in the early morning. Looks like you provide a very good breakfast table!
Nice shots! We have these in our area, also - and I find their coo soothing - for a while... After a few hours, though, I'm like ok ok - enough already!
Those red feet really stand out, don't they? I usually see them plopped down on our deck -- two at a time.
I remember when I first saw lady Red-winged Blackbirds, I wondered what they were. Then their menfolk stopped by, and I figured it out!~
Beautiful pictures of the pigeons.This species can not see you in the Netherlands.
When I see these guys, the word "Birdbrained" comes to mind.
They appear you have been feeding them very well. We have a few around here, but I do no like to hear them. Seem sad to me.
Such pretty photos. I love their little feet!
I think the Mourning Doves are very pretty. I wondered how the name Mourning Doves comes about.
They are so beautiful up close. I love those gorgeous red feet!
Love the sounds of my doves. They 'work' the clutter under my birdfeeders. And that's a good thing. Coo, coo, coo...
Beautiful and delicate birds :)
I've never seen these doves, now I know where the term dove gray comes from!
They seem to be just in pairs here. I've never seen such a large group of them.
You are such a good bird girl! Aren't they pretty? So grey and soft.
I bet you hear a lot of early morning (or mourning) cooing there! ;)
Oh, I do love these!! So beautiful!
Wonderful photos, I dearly loving mourning doves and they come to my feeder every morning and early evening. As do the guineas which amuse me no end!
We have so many doves in our yard all the time that I tend not to take photos! These shots of them are lovely. I have to quit being so complacent about their presence!
Doves!!! I'm used to seeing them everywhere i live - it was years before i learned not everyone has that experience . . . hmmmm -
Brilliant Mourning Doves, lovely munchers.
Ach! There's no doubt about it. It's a bird-eat-bird world out there.
Beautiful. I love their coos, so soothing.
So because you are feeding the doves we should get some this summer that are fat and healthy.
Hi Tex, Neat pics and I'll bet there are some nice sounds as well.
I like doves,Tex!Preety plumage!!Happy birds visiting your yard!!Wonderful pictures!!Dimi...
We have had a few dove's hanging around this year.
Beautiful colours on them. I've always liked the sound of their call.
Beautiful birds. From a distance they look like pretty plain grey birds. Up close the detail is so very pretty!
I absolutely love the sound of mourning doves. I really do. Great photos!
Wonderful pictures, I love these beautiful birds!
The black color in the feathers adds to the charm. Regards.
AH, the peaceful doves!!love them & great shots of their feasting!!
I love the sounds of the Mourning Doves, especially the cool sound they make when they take flight. I was happy to finally have one here last year, and this year I saw a pair, but never up close like your wonderful shots! I like the second one where I can see the iridescence on the dove's feathers.
Such pretty coloring.
Fantastic Ms. T. One of my favorites are mourning doves...their song.And pretty, pretty Mrs. R W Blackbird.
Love the subtle beauty of these guys. Just a little bit of blue eye shadow!
I love that you take such good care of all your feathered friends! The doves are one of my favorite birds, I love their sounds.
Seems they were quite hungry :)
Such wonderful pearl and grey colors.
Great photos! I love mourning doves. They are hunted here in early fall. :(
I like the ripple look of the wing feathers:@)
They are JUST SO Beautiful!
These photos really show off the rose-colored hue on their feathers.
You take such good care of the critters who visit you. Obviously, the word is out that you feed them well. :)
Wonderful colors on these birds !
I love mourning doves. Well, I guess I pretty much love all birds. But the doves are so mellow and sound so beautiful. I hope the hawks have had their fill and leave them alone for a while.
Sad to think of any of these being supper, yet it's also sad to think of the hawks going hungry. Such a dilemma!
They doves are beautiful and you captured great shots. Have a nice evening. We are in for storms again here. Tis the spring season!!CM
Run and hide, sweet doves. Bridger kept birds of prey out of our air space. On the other hand, I'm not sure how friendly a GSD would be to wandering doves. Snack?
I love doves, they look so gentle. We have some around and I like to listen to their cooing.Hugs,JB
Interesting, they are flocking here in droves too. However, I don't think my Dove visitors have the same coloring on their feet. I will have to try for a close up.Fun to see your chicks!
They are always so sweet to see, and hear. Love their feet.
Our doves are not back yet so thank you for giving me my Mourning Dove fix! I wonder if any of yours are en route to here!
I love morning doves.
I am so glad you have so many of those beautiful birds!Lindahttp://coloradofarmlife.wordpress.com
Their feet show off so vivid in your pictures.
I like their pretty pink legs and feet.
Distinctive flume and feet are so colorful and pretty!Beautiful close-up shots, Theresa!!Have a Beautiful Day!Peace :)
Dearest Theresa; Pretty plumage, they have♡♡♡ And I love their their red feet which add the pretty color to them. very different from ours (as I commented before) (^_^)ｖ Sweet to see other birds together, too.So sorry for my recent absence, wishing you will have a wonderful new week.Sending Lots of Love and Hugs from Japan to my Dear friend in America, xoxo Miyako*
Very pretty plumage indeed. Love their pink feet.
I hope that things are fine where you are. Heard there was a bad tornado in Texas.
I do love the doves and their saunter across the yard.
i like their pink feet.
Dearest Theresa,Lovely red feet too.Finally catching up on blogs. Got very dizzy on Friday evening and hit the mattress early. Yesterday I had to catch up on cleaning and laundry.Hugs,Mariette
They really are such peaceful, beautiful creatures. We have tons of them too this year.
Pretty "purple" plumage!! I have been seeing a lot of them this spring also. I noticed two on the deck rail this morning that were quite "intimate"!!! I was not sure it was appropriate to take pictures, but you know I did anyway!!
I just remembered that I forgoy to say how pretty the images are. They are beautiful, showing off lots of pretty details in their feathers!!
Nice! I wonder if you are feeding half of Texas!
I love Turtle Doves! They are such gentle creatures! Great shots!!
They sound so sweet. The little cowbird is pretty! :)
Beautiful birds and fantastic shots! I hope you have yourself a wonderful week Tex!
Nice close in pictures, you sure spoil your many winged guests!
They are so cute, lovely plumage!
So cute they are! We have also some doves here latekly, but they are called forest doves here. They are pretty too, but they are so noisy... ;)
our doves have no black dotsALOHA from Honolulu,ComfortSpiral =^..^=
That's pretty good. I've never seen so many mourning doves in one place.
You have so many different birds.
Lovely bird and lovely pictures.And You are so kind to all the bird that give them food. They must eat a lot.
Not my favorite bird, but I do like their coo-ing.
Your house must be like the birdie buffet! I bet they love it. Makes me want to put out more feed.I love the ones above with the little pink cheeks, well almost on their cheeks. First time I've ever seen them that I can remember. That close up.-Lisa
We don't get this many mourning doves but the few we do get I always enjoy, and love to hear their cooing wake up call.
Such sweet birds. They seem to be a favorite target for the hawks.
We have several pairs here. I love them.
So that's where mine are! Hehehe! Normally we have bunches too, but I haven't seen very many yet this year. They're one of my favorites!
The cowbird and blackbirds really mix in well. Don't think I would've noticed them if you hadn't pointed them out. You treat your doves well. Mine have to rely on cast-offs from the small bird feeders.
You are very generous with that seed Theresa. No wonder they come back for more.
Wow, super images of the doves!
T, very nice series of shots! Aren't the doves just so elegant!
These are such sweet birds....
Lovely shots of these pretty birds.
what pretty doves!
Nice to see Mourning Doves instead of the Eurasian Ring neck doves that are taking over at least in my part of the world.
Beautiful series on the dove flocks!
It does look like a whole flock. I've noticed more and more doves around my place in the last couple of years.
You make them look so elegant and fancy!! ....as opposed to the idiots that fly into our windows and immediately get snatched up by hawks...
I've not seen morning doves at my house in a long time. Cowbirds are so funny to see though.
