Just Simple Things
Pictures and comments about things in nature that I enjoy.
Mourning Doves are so common, at least here in FL, that many people do not think much about them. But when we stop and observe them, we discover that are very beautiful birds. The soft colors vary a little between individual birds and light makes them shine in beautiful hues. Great pictures, Mags!
We don’t see very many in my area so I am very happy these 3 stay around my place. There were 4 of them but one was killed awhile back. Thank you, I am glad you liked the pictures.
They have the sweetest tiny head and listening to them is beautiful!
Yes, they do and I really enjoying hearing them coo. I just left your blog now I want ice cream. 🙂 I eat it year round but haven’t made any in a very long time. It is so much better than store bought.
I agree! Thank you Mags!
They are pretty birds.

Awww, we are happy you came to see the pretty birds. Hugs and nose kisses
They always seem so gentle to me and for some reason I think of my grandmother when I see them.
They are for the most part very gentle birds. I have seen a couple of them scuffle a few times over food. Did your grandmother like doves?
Great photos, Maggie! I like how you captured the delicate coloring on these beauties, which are easy to miss if you don’t look at them intently. We love listening to mourning doves; their coos are so soothing. Hugs to you, Pooh and Chancy.
The beautiful blue grey color did not show up very well since they were in mostly sunshine but most of the colors show as they are. I too love to listen to them coo. Hugs to all of you and I hope lots of kitties find their way to their forever homes this year.
Love their cooing! Have a good weekend!
I do also. Hope your weekend has been and continues to be wonderful.
They are so soft and pretty!
Yes, they are and I sure enjoy hearing them ‘coo’ as they slowly stroll around eating.
I love mourning doves, We are lucky to have them here as well. Thanks for sharing this with us.
Have a wonderful weekend. Hugs, Julia
Oh, I am so happy to know you have them there and you can enjoy them. You have a wonderful weekend also sweet Julia. Hugs
Oh they are so lovely & beautiful…I miss our Mourning doves here…a lot. They were such gentle birds & they would walk by Nylablue when she was out in Condo. They must have sensed she was not a threat…Aren’t birds wonderful Maggie?
I remember your doves from the past. I so wish you still had them to enjoy. Yes, birds are wonderful, I enjoy them so much. Hugs
I LOVE DOVES… we just heard them cooing a few days ago.. we used to have them all the time and hear the cooing but the hawks ate them all. we are hoping they are making a comeback. these are sure pretty
So sorry about the hawks eating the doves. I hope too they come back. There were 4 of them for a few years but something killed one of them about 3 years ago. The 3 are still staying together and here at my place.
They are almost camouflaged.
I love the cooing they make.
Yes, they are…there are so many seeds and weeds they are just about hidden. I love to hear them coo too. Hugs
Beautiful, Sis. Love to listen to their gentle coos in the morning hours ❤
I love listening to them also and just watching them stroll around the yard eating. Hugs ❤
