The weather forecast called for rain, so I stayed home this morning. Then of course it didn’t rain. Oh well! :-p
So I spent the afternoon working in the backyard, planting more hummingbird-attracting plants. As I worked, our neighborhood pair of Common Ground Doves flew into the yard. Usually these guys are very skittish, and it is hard to get a clear picture of them. But today I guess they decided that I wasn’t going to bother them, and they tolerated my presence as I took a few pictures. I love their iridescent feathers and those bright orange beaks. These two are always together, which makes sense because Common Ground Doves mate for life. It’s sweet to see them together all the time.
