It was belly up, its tail on the left a wing at the bottom and its head is under the wing. When I first saw it I thought it was a dead bird that had somehow been beheaded…it was very much alive though.
This was the next photo I got…preening itself.
Then it was back with its mate exploring and searching for food. Beautiful Mourning Doves. I had never seen them sun like that before. I have seen them take dust baths and that is interesting too.
