Feathered Portrait ~ The Mourning Dove (Eddie)


::

he sat there
all plump
and
confident looking

even though his mate
would not join in

further down the branch
she sat
looking on

obviously a couple,
wherever one went
the other followed

but today
distance came between them
when they roosted

perhaps
even love birds
have spats

  1. This is Beautiful! I LOVE MOURNING DOVES!
    We had a family last year. It was so beautiful watching the parents take care of the baby. How angry and sad the day I found, I believe, what was left of the mother after a hawk swooped in. But baby grew up and carried on.
    Here's to keeping the feeders full and the bird baths filled with fresh water!
