Birds, Birds, And More Birds

There are some serious issues and serious headlines playing out in the nation this weekend.  I think in light of everything happening we might need something just a tad lighter, for at least one post.

Over the past weeks, a pair of Morning Doves made a nest in our red pine. Today the babies are out and able to fly a couple feet–landing on the top of our arbor. I watched as the young ones ate out of the crop of the parents—have never seen that before with my eyes. I grabbed my camera but the longer lens was not on it and I was not sure I had time to change it……but these pics give a hint of what I watched……



Then I put on my powerful lens, got on the face masks, and James and I drove to a less-traveled place for some bird watching.
