Our house is surrounded on three sides by a wide porch, but there is one spot on the railing that the mourning doves prefer as a perch to look out over the garden. It's smack-dab in front of the main door to our house, where people and critters frequently pass by. All the activity doesn't seem to phase them one bit. Last summer was the first time I noticed this pattern.
So yesterday as I passed by the door, I was happy to see them back in the same spot!
For quite a while I watched them.
Perched in the usual spot, looking out on the garden, wishing things were blooming out there.
Oh wait, that was me...
Not sure what they were wishing for.
Um, guess they didn't know I was watching!
