    Three mourning doves and two rock doves (aka pigeons) for you!

    I got an Eastern towhee and a ruby-throated hummingbird to add to my count. Unfortunately for the poor hummingbird I don’t have a feeder and the lantana and mandevilla blooms don’t have the type of nectar it’s looking for.

    I wonder if the pigeons and doves ever fool around? Seen any doveons with skinny necks?

    Poor hummingbird I think you need to … grow those things for it!

    Richard, I love the doves. I’ve started talking quietly to them. They cock their heads and watch me. And then go back to eating.

    Hi Stacy,
    Joanie again, from the land of green fields and u2. What a shame, no new pic of the city for Thursday? More soon I hope. Be inspired Stacy cos If you’re ancestors are from here, then you are a warrior who doesn’t flinch from adversity!

    Mourning doves are very gentle. I once had a pair of ringneck doves (similar to mourning, except just a tad bigger with a ring around their neck) and could handle them without any problem. They were white, and one had showed up at my backyard feeder. I captured it, easily, and then later found a mate. They will sit in your hand, eat from the other, tilt their head, look at you. However, kept in the house, they DO start calling at daybreak…an alarm clock, whether you need it or not.

    Cara, yes! They watch me and don’t fly of when I talk to them!

    Joanie, thank you for the pep talk. I guess I thought eventually there would be more of a rest from the war!
