mourning dove zenaide macroura
Oh well,griping doesn`t get me anywhere.
This world bird Wed.I`m posting the mourning dove.We have many this year,but 2 hawks have been hunting together,so I don`t know how many are left,the doves have taken up residance in alot of our pines.
I did see the brown thrasher today,one anyhow,& they are here a week earlier than the past 2 years.
I have not seen "my"robin with the wierd growing feather,I fear he is dead.The empty nest he or she usually first lay their eggs in after they fancy it up a bit remains untouched under the deck out my kitchen.There is still a strand of curly white ribbon dangling from it they found somewhere.A robin has been hitting my kitchen window over & over,even after I put newspapers over it,but I finally had to hang the hummingbird feeder from the spouting outside the window as I was afraid he`d kill himself the way he was beating at it.I figure my robin is/was at least 6 years old.My Max died in 2007 & I remember thinking that spring if my robin would notice I no longer had my shadow walking with us.
