wake up call


There’s nothing more calming than waking up to their gentle cooing songs early in the morning

  1. Such a gorgeous capture! The colours are fantastic.
    The doves have chosen a spot above the garden gate arbour to nest for years. It happens to be next to our bedroom window & just like you, I don’t think there is anything calmer than hearing their cooing first thing in the morning.

    • Thanks Deb. Much rather hear the doves than the loud cackling of the crows and the bluejays anyday! They are a peaceful bird!

  2. The mourning doves are out in force these days. This shot could have been taken in my backyard as we hae the same exact fence (complete with aged patina). I like the mourning doves, too and find their cooing soothing. Not many capture their colors and think they are simply brown birds. Nice that you’ve showcased their blue-rimmed eyes and pink feet!

    • Thank you. I took this on a cold, wet day and he had just ruffled up his feathers…made for a great photo op!
