They Mate For Life

Mourning Doves
Establishing a territory in early spring,
 they are sweetly
seen together on our garden birdbath. 
Mates for life,
very soon she will be sitting on a nest.
There is a gentleness to the Dove's behavior and
a recognizeable and  familiar territorial
cooing song.
I have posted on the Mourning Dove before,
however, these two were so willing to linger
long enough for a good photo.....
they well
deserve their story to be told....again.
I'm so loving our summer garden visitors.....
Blessings.....Dee Dee
