Mourning Dove In Nest   3 comments

Mourning Dove Image by kenne

Mourning Doves are primarily a bird of open country, scattered trees, and woodland edges, but large numbers roost in woodlots during winter. They feed on the ground in grasslands, agricultural fields, backyards, and roadsides.

They typically nest amid dense foliage on the branch of an evergreen, orchard tree, mesquite, cottonwood, or vine.  Unbothered by nesting around humans, Mourning Doves may even nest on gutters, eaves, light fixtures or abandoned equipment.

The male will bring nesting material to the female. She generally builds a very flimsy nest with no insulation. This one is atop a light fixture right outside our door.

Shape
is everywhere
you look,
unless you
count air.

A photographer
is first a viewer
looking for
contrasts
in shapes.

Different
kinds of shapes
convey
different
massages.

Decide
on the message
before
capturing
the moment.

Children of stone pour water
For more than drinking.

on the glass by one misdirected dove — oops!
The dove was all right, maybe a headache, but all right. (October 8, 2016)

These beautiful little echeveria blossoms  (approximate 1.5cc in size) are potted succulents on our patio.
