Thanks Steph.....so beautiful. Next time I go out, I'll maybe try to get a little closer on foot instead of trying to sneak up with my scooter....they're always around.

Ok - a Rock Dove then (it's the name for homing Pigeon) - I put one below for you.

I see Rock Doves too - mostly in parks. Sometimes they will come to the feeders here at the house. They are beautiful!

All I know Steph is 'homing pigeon'. They have a bluish tint to some of their feathers & they are so pretty. They're always along this stretch of the street, which is close to my place. I tried to enlarge the photo to bring them in, but it didn't want to work. Just my cell phone, but it does take a decent photo for a person who knows little of it other than point & snap.

Are they White-winged Doves or Mourning Doves Patricia?

Here's a picture of a White-winged Dove below.

I love Doves and I see them in the yard all the time. I love their song.

I get both of them here. Lovely birds.

Here's a Mourning Dove below.

Neighborhood pigeons are always along this street. Tried getting closer, but this was about it while coming home today on my scooter.

A huge 2.5 inches! :)

I found the pic on the internet, I didn't take it myself.  I wish I could have seen them in real life though!  Isn't it just so sweet?~Melinda

How big was that grasshopper, Idaho Spud, that you mistook it for a bird?
