Morning Dove

Posted by Picasa

We have had 6 Morning Doves that sit for a couple of hours each sunny morning in the highest branches of our maple tree, I love the cooing sound they make and their beautiful blue eyeliner. 

We lost lots of snow today and I saw my 1st robin!   Spring has to get here soon.

We've had gorgeous spring-like weather the past several days. Rain is coming tomorrow.

A robin - what a thrilling sign that is! It won't be long now...(they know these things) :-)

How exciting to see your first robin of the season! I haven't seen one yet... kinda late for us... they should be here by now. We've been having the morning doves hang out on the platform bird feeders... there were 2 that sat there for 30 minutes today.

I had a bevy of mourning doves in the tray feeder today simply hanging out! They're sounds are gorgeous, too. I think that walking out in the morning and hearing the cacophony of bird voices are thrilling this time of year too!

I've been seeing doves, robins, and sparrows. It sounds like the sparrows are getting ready to build their nest near the window air conditioner outside our bedroom window like they do every year. They wake us up in the mornings, and we've knocked the nest down before, but I read that male sparrows choose the same spot every year. I guess that's better than taking over the birdhouses the wrens like. Oh, I saw a wren the other day, too.

Well, spring is just around the corner. Waiting is hard, but seeing birds and the spring plants emerging helps keep up the spirits.

How lucky for you to have such pleasant visitors. I saw my first Robin this week too!

Beautiful. Is that a mourning dove, or morning dove? ;-)

I love ...the dove!
Everything is waking up in Muskoka!

They always sound so sad to me.
