Is it naptime yet?

5302 2 wms Dove drying wings after rain shower needs wm (39 of 1)

This mourning dove has the right idea. Resting between feedings is a must and I make sure to do that myself each and every day.

My resting place of choice is slightly different than the mourning dove’s. I prefer something soft,something that doesn’t have pointy needles. I always choose maple trees. Their leaves are far more comfy and apparently you can get syrup out of them.

BIRDS BEING BIRDS…well what else would they be?

IN THE FIRST TWO IMAGES, THE MOURNING DOVE JUST PLUMMETS FROM THE SKY LIKE A LEAD BALLOON….WELL, ACTUALLY THEY’RE A LITTLE MORE GRACEFUL THAN THAT, BUT NOT MUCH. THEIR FEATHERS ARE PRETTY THOUGH AND THEY LOOK NICE AS THEY FLUTTER AROUND…BUT THEY’RE MORE THAN A LITTLE CLUMSY AT OTHER TIMES AND THEY JUST SEEM TO GALUMPH  AROUND IN THE GRASS,  YES, I SAID “GALUMPH”… I DON’T KNOW IF THAT’S A WORD, BUT THAT’S HOW THEY MOVE…THEY GALUMPH.
