    I have doves here every day somewhere in the yard.  Today they had their feathers all puffed up sitting on a railing.

    They feed in the tray feeder here often as well as ground feed, too.  Sometimes they sit for the longest time and I think they are sleeping then or maybe deep thinking!

    I do like their markings and their colors.  Their “mourning” coo sounds eery especially when it is quiet out, but I like to listen to them.

    And, their feathers do make a lot of noise when they take off quickly and fly.  I think they startle easy and seem to move so fast then.  I notice they do stay on the feeder sometimes when the blue jays feed, too.
