Mourning Doves

Or, maybe I should say "Morning Doves".dove1.jpg
Every morning, a pair of doves comes to the feeder outside the kitchen window on the south side of the house.  They are beautiful with their tan-shot-with-iridescence feathers.  They are peaceful, yet shy and wild, and they make me smile every time I see them.
In the early evening, they come again to eat the small seeds that have fallen on the ground from the messier regular visitors.  I guess a lot of my fascination with this pair is that I have never even heard of mourning doves coming to a feeder. 
I believe these are the same pair I've seen for a couple of years now.  They have been in the more open areas of the woods behind our house, near the storage shed.  I guess now they realize that we will not harm them and that there is a tasty free meal closer to the house.
I hope they stick around and that they teach their offspring that Hilton House is a good place to stay.
