It's a busy time around here and I've been slacking on my blog but I wanted to update you on my pale Mourning Dove. I've seen him or her a number of times over the seasons and he or she seems to always have a mate. So everything is working out well except...This last ice storm seems to have taken his or her tail feathers! This happens from time to time and I even saw a Mourning Dove with extra feathers stuck to his or her tail!! (sorry no pictures). So anyway tail or no tail, that is one tough Mourning Dove!! Sorry the pictures aren't the greatest but LOOK at that silly Blue Jay!!!
