Chilly Dove

Last evening I got a pic of this chilly little Mourning Dove, puffed up against the cold as night fell. We have a small group of doves that come every evening and roost either under or on top of our deck. It's cute to see them in the summertime, enjoying the last of the sun's rays. But in the winter, they look so cold! They don't sleep there, they must go further into the woods for that, but for a few hours in the evening, they have a sit and a final snack. Very cute!

I just love this picture. 'Our' mourning doves are a little grayer/browner, while yours seems creamier, more pastel-y. We are very fond of them.
