Thank you Tony - love the penguin story and the information you gave us.

I have the movie "March of the Penguins". Anyone here see it?

It's great!

Melinda, love penguins. Did you know penguins are tracked from space? The rate of death/injury when they are tagged with a radio tracking device is too high, so some scientist figured out a way to track them through their splatt (spoor/droppings/feces) by satellite. Quite interesting work.

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!

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.

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

Comment by Ruth Anthony-Gardner on September 14, 2012 at 10:54pm

Aww! Thanks, booklover. That's a keeper.
